Space to Breathe Girls - woodland support group ages 12-16yrs
What is the event?
COVID has had a big impact on our wellbeing and mental health. If you are a teenage girl, finding life hard, feeling low and in need of a boost this group is for you.
Join Julia, Rachel and Donna, forest school leaders, for some adventuring in the stunning Kingley Vale Nature Reserve, take part in fun activities including fire lighting, campfire cooking, natural art, bush craft, nature and conservation activities, den building, rope swings and woodland games. Learn to use woodcraft tools safely.
We will be cooking lunch over the campfire as part of the programme. Please let us know any special dietary needs.
You'll end each week feeling happy and relaxed and better able to manage the week ahead.
