ReWild your Child ~ Yabbying in the Dam

April 9, 2024 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


Details:  Join us these April school holidays and for nature play week for a full day of uninterrupted wild bush play, exploring, creating and learning bush survival and bushcraft skills through hands on activities that are fun, engaging and connects your child to nature in a deep and meaningful way. During this workshop, we’ll be going to the dam to catch yabbies which is always a favourite amongst the children!

Set on a 20 acre bush property in Strathewen, approximately 45kms north-east of Melbourne or just over an hour from the CDB. This fabulous location offers hikes up a mountain and untouched wilderness with an abundance of wildlife (kangaroos, wombats, echidna’s, deer, birdlife, frogs, turtles, lizards and much, much more!). This provides ample opportunity to learn and develop tracking, navigation and bush survival skills and safety.

We have children that leave our programs saying, it was the best day of their lives!  Each Forest School holiday program is child led and completely different so no two will be alike.

Some of the activities that will be offered during this ReWild Your Child Forest School program are:

      • Shelter building and construction with ropes, hammers, sticks and tarps
      • How to safety use tools (hammers, saws and drills ) and construct things out of wood
      • Bush walk discovering local fauna and flora
      • How to stay safe in the bush
      • Snake awareness and safety
      • Nature connection games
      • Creating, crafting, making art with natural materials
