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.

Woodland Wellies at Hamsterley Forest

Sessions must be booked in advance.

Every Saturday morning 9.30am – 11.00am during term-time.

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 2 years onwards.  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.
