Last week saw the first week of our Short Breaks sessions, and they were a huge success!
Funded by Hampshire County Council, these holiday activity days enable children with additional needs to join our Woodland Holiday Club at Itchen Valley Country Park. Activities include den building, bug hunting, campfire cooking, making bows and arrows, pond dipping, journey sticks, woodland arts and crafts, wood working, nature walks, habitat exploration, camouflage games and team building exercises... all of which allow the young people to learn new skills, meet new people and spend more time outdoors.
This particular session was especially important. Many young people have not had a chance to socialise or spend time outdoors since the beginning of lockdown in March!
