A week of half term activities with Forest School & Copper Bay Creative to get kids outdoors!

This summer half term (28th May – 1st June 2018) Forest School Swansea will be putting on a week of outdoor activities for children up to the age of 11. We are sponsoring the weeks’ activities, so all sessions are half price!

At Copper Bay Creative we think it’s really important that we encourage the younger generation to get outside regularly, away from all things digital. We live in a world where technology has evolved drastically – mostly for the good, but it can however have a detrimental impact on young adults. This is why, as a digital agency, we wanted to join forces with Forest School Swansea to be able to offer these exciting outdoor activities at a reduced price. We know all too well how expensive the school holidays can end up being!

Forest School Swansea is a charity, founded in 2001, with the aim of raising the self-esteem and confidence of children and young people across Swansea and Neath Port Talbot through the appreciation of the natural environment. The sessions they run are split into various age groups, so activities are suitable for everyone. Younger children can play in the mud kitchen, take part in treasure trails and games and use leaves and mud to create works of art! Big kids can get involved in games that develop an awareness of the woodland and coastline ecosystems. Including challenges and activities such as lighting and cooking on an open fire or constructing a shelter.
The aim is to offer a flexible, friendly and most importantly fun learning environment to encourage children to explore the world around them.

Chris Dow from Forest School Swansea commented,

We’re really excited to be working with Copper Bay Creative as we know there are hundreds of children across Swansea who would love to be outside playing in the woods but don’t yet know about the opportunity. As one digital loving participant said to us when doing some digging on a Forest School day – this is brilliant, like Minecraft, only real!
