Throughout the year OASES work with partner organisations and sponsors to run special events to educate, inspire and engage different audiences with the great outdoors and global sustainability education.

Join the OASES team at Hamsterley Forest for lots of forest fun and games. Run in association with 'Little Learners' the sessions are designed to engage children from 6 months to age 9 years old.  Each week we will encourage the children to explore the forest and their senses through a new theme (normally based around a children's book).  Come dressed and prepared for the outdoors.

Sessions must be booked in advance: £30 per child for 6 sessions/£6 for 1 session.  For children 6 months to 9 years old. Children must be accompanied by an adult.  Sessions run rain or shine - wear your wellies and waterproofs!
