We run a number of fun, inspiring — and sometimes dirty — activities for children, tweens and teenagers of all ages.
Our Child and Youth progammes aim to get you outdoors, discovering where your food comes from and appreciating nature and the wildlife within our city.
You'll also aquire essential life skills that aren't taught in your standard classroom whilst making new friends, getting a confidence boost and having a great time outside.
After School Activities
Each week the youth crew also feeds the animals within our small-holding, puts them to bed and then as a group decides what to do during the rest of the afternoon, from cooking, gardening and firelighting, to arts, crafts and many other outdoor activities. This also instills a sense of autonomy and ability to make decisions as a team.
Depending on capacity, there's also the possibility to use this experience towards the volunteer section of Duke of Edinburgh awards.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in exploring this option.
Boiling Wells is the ideal site for children and youth camps during half terms, Easter and summer holidays. Kids on camp are not only healthy and happy children but also pickup essential life skills that aren't taught in the classroom.
Fun packed outdoor educational experiences to complement your own school's projects, curriculum or to suit your specific needs as an educational provider are available at the Farm.
School group visits can include a tour of the farm, making pizzas in our wood fired oven, natural crafts, bush crafts and other outdoor learning experiences. You can book a one off visit, Forest School Sessions, weekly sessions for a period of six weeks or give us a call to discuss your bespoke requirements.
We take a few work experience placements for teenagers each year.
