If your child is aged 5-12 years and experiencing mental health challenges, we would like to invite them and you (siblings included) to attend a calm, relaxing and fun day in local woodland. It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet other families, share experiences, play games and learn woodland skills.

Each day stands alone. You are welcome to apply for all the dates. (We endeavour to give everyone a chance of attending at least once, which means we cannot guarantee you a place on each day.)


Mill Wood, Vert Woods Community Woodland,
Park Lane, Laughton, Lewes BN8 6BP

(map available on request)


Friday 21 December 10:00am-3:00pm

Who’s it for?

Anyone aged 5-12 years, their relatives , carers and siblings

What will I get out of it?

You will:

  • Increase your connection to nature
  • Increase your access to nature
  • Develop your understanding of how nature can support your mental health
