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.
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: empathy, wellbeing, confidence, appreciation for the natural world and increasing knowledge.
Throughout the programme, 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.
Tiffany Belford-Fry is our Woodland Warriors’ leader and says: ‘It has been a pleasure to have come to know and work with many people from all different backgrounds, cultures and with a range of disabilities over the years and I am really looking forward, to being able to make a difference and share in the journey with these amazing children.’
