If you lead a group for children - whether it be Beavers, Brownies or other out-of-school group - we would be happy to arrange a visit to Lower Smite Farm or a nature reserve local to you.

Our staff and volunteers are able to offer educational and discovery sessions for your groups, depending on availability.

For all our children's groups we have a minimum charge of £60 for the first hour, with a £30 per hour charge thereafter for up to 30 children in a group.

The following programmes are designed to take place at Lower Smite Farm but they may be adaptable to other locations including nature reserves or other venue of your choice.

We work with groups of all ages and can help you work towards badges (see group specific pages for details of badge activities) or simply get outside and enjoy the natural world - there's plenty we can offer your group. We can cater for all ages and abilities, with activities adapted as needed for special educational needs. Please contact us to discuss your requirements. 

Just choose from the following list of activities which require at least 30 minutes each and can be put together in a programme to suit you:

  • Minibeast hunting
  • Pond dipping
  • Natural art
  • Shelter building
  • Campfire fun
  • Gardening
  • Bird box building (incurs a small extra charge)
  • Nature walk

There are a number of other games, crafts and activities which can be put together with the above activities to create the perfect outdoor experience for your group. We may also be able to come out to your group, to lead activities where you meet.
