Sussex Forest Activities offers an invitation to adults and children to come, explore and enjoy the local woodland.


We hope that through Sussex Forest Activities our participants will foster, with our guidance and supervision:

Self‐regulation, self‐direction, and self‐reflection. That they will take away experiences and life skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. We hope that this experience will allow them to form a connection to the natural world and gain an understanding of the delicate balance of nature and the finite resources around us.

Childhood only happens once, and we believe that a holistic and nurturing start gives the foundations for growth

We also hold all relevant food hygiene certificates. Public liability and specialised forest school insurances are in place. Risk assessments are completed for all the activities that take place on site and are reviewed regularly.

Welcome To Sussex Forest Activities

"My daughter attends the Home Ed session on a Friday afternoon and loves it! Within a few weeks she has gone from a child who hated getting dirty to a little girl who is loving the outdoors again, making fires, erecting tents, and exploring the forest, and of course her favourite part.....toasting marshmallows on the fire!"

"Another fantastic forest school! A brilliant half term activity for children young and old. Sam and Caroline were fabulous and full of energy as usual. My daughter came home full of stories of what she had been doing that morning. Thanks all for another great experience!"

"My kids had such an amazing day at Forest School. My son is a nervous and anxious child, he was welcomed with open arms and a child friendly approach which made him feel happy to be left for the day, and he had an awesome time. We will be coming back for more in the holidays."

Food and Eating with Sussex Forest Activities

The preparing of food, cooking and communal eating is really important to us at Sussex Forest Activities.  Apart from teaching the children valuable life skills, eating together is a wonderfully social experience.  However, we know just how important it is for the children and us to follow safe food practices. For this reason we are a registered food providing company and are delighted to have been awarded a five star rating.


Unless stated otherwise, all events will be held at:

Furzefield Scout Campsite

Dapper's Lane
