Woodland Warriors is an outdoor company, that helps children of different age groups and from different backgrounds to learn basic life skills, through outdoor play. Sessions take place at the Memorial Park in Wickford, Essex and we have children aged from 4 to 16 attend.
The outdoor setting helps to relax the mind, body and soul, enhancing endorphins within the brain to relax and relieve anxiety and stress. This provides a foundation, from which to learn and enhance life skills such as: self-confidence, making and maintaining friendships, self-regulation of emotions and gives an appreciation for the natural world. The parents who come along have also expressed how they find the time outdoors, mixing with other parents who have similar life experiences, to be very therapeutic and have likened it to an outdoor parent support group.
Throughout the sessions, children will be able to participate in a wide range of activities from balancing and using core muscles on the tree swing, to climbing rope ladders and trees. They will develop problem solving skills, learn about the creatures and their interesting lives in the undergrowth and above the canopy, and there will be opportunities to make tools, learn how to safely make fire, and identify animal tracks. No two sessions are the same, with different activities each week.
Woodland Warriors takes place on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10am and 11.45am.
