THINK WILD | FEEL FREE

 

Forest Adventure Club

Forest Adventure Club offers the space and freedom for all children to explore, learn and flourish in nature. 

 

Our sessions stimulate physical, emotional, cognitive, social, creative and spiritual development, all at the child's own pace through hands on learning experiences and the joy of play.

Each session is led by a fully qualified Level 3 Forest School Leader who is passionate about continuing to develop their own learning and stay true to the Forest School ethos.

We utilise the vast natural, green spaces across Singapore and thrive in the wild woodlands on real adventures. 

 

We role model a ‘take only memories and leave nothing but footprints’ approach to respect nature and for long term sustainability.

We believe in collaborating with local like-minded organisations who value and support time spent in the great outdoors, to create a harmonious and healthy community.

About Forest School

History and Guiding Principles

 

The Forest School initiative originated in Scandinavia, where 'friluftsliv', or open air living and learning is a natural part of life from early education to adulthood.

 

Research in to Forest School and it's benefits has grown significantly and it is now a popular and internationally recognised outdoor education delivery model.

 

An authentic Forest School follows six key principles that shape and govern the Forest School ethos.

 

These six principles are:

  • Forest School is a long-term process of regular sessions, rather than one-off or infrequent visits; the cycle of planning, observation, adaptation and review links each session.

  • Forest School takes place in a woodland or natural environment to support the development of a lifelong relationship between the learner and the natural world.

  • Forest School uses a range of learner centred processes to create a community for being, development and learning.

  • Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.

  • Forest School offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.

  • Forest School is run by qualified Forest School practitioners, who continuously maintain and develop their professional practice.
