After the success of Bore Place’s pilot holiday club programme last summer, they have decided this year to create a whole new programme of fun holiday mini-adventures for children. The perfect opportunity for parents to drop their children off for some healthy, outdoor holiday time exploring and enjoying the beautiful Bore Place organic farm estate. With our friendly and welcoming education team the children will have fun, make new friends and learn through doing.
A Really Wild Day
See how wildlife has changed since the spring. Become citizen scientists and take on the challenge to find as many species as we can in one day! Checking humane traps and trail cameras, ponds, hedges, meadows and woods we’ll race the clock to see what we can find and learn how to turn our sightings into useful scientific data. You’ll use binoculars, ID keys and apps, and a selection of field equipment, just like the expert naturalists, and make your own sightings notebook. Children will go home inspired to continue watching wildlife, and learn they can do their bit to care for and protect it.
Enjoy your picnic lunch around the campfire in the Green Man Glade.
Suitable for children aged 6-11 years. Parents/carers do not accompany children.
Meet at Bore Place Reception:
Bore Place Road,
