Information and Pricing

FireLets go outside and get thoroughly nature connected while having a lot of fun. Your children will raise their awareness and confidence in themselves and deepen their connection to others and nature with an experienced qualified Forest School Leader.

While there is a familiar rhythm to the day, each session is varied and different and can be booked as a stand alone. If you book three days it is not only cheaper, but you have the cummulative effect of a deeper immersion.

We follow a familiar rhythm with different activities every day. You can book one day or multiple days.

TIME: 10am to 3pm daily

DATES: 3rd, 4th and 5th November

AGE: 5-8 year olds

COST: €40 per child, per day. Book three days €110.

Kit-list:

  • A small backpack.
  • Wet gear; waterproof jacket and trousers – essential!
  • Avoid cotton, esp. jeans as it gets cold when wet. Use a wicking base layer if you have it. LIDL and ALDI often stock these.
  • Wellington boots or waterproof hiking boots
  • Hat and gloves.
  • A change of clothes in the car for when you pick them up (they may well be mucky/wet/cold)
  • Lunch and several snacks
  • A drink, a bottle of water and a hot drink in a flask is very nice.
  • Any medication your child needs, please inform us in advance.

     

 

FOR PARENTS WHO WANT TO GET INVOLVED AND GET NATURE CONNECTED

Parents are encouraged to volunteer, it is as rewarding for YOU as it is for your child to be immersed in forest culture for the day and is a valuable shared experience. This includes gaining your own experience by participating, observing, assisting only when asked and helping the leader when necessary.

Please email [email protected] if you would like to get involved.
