SET IN 20 ACRES OF WOODLAND ON THE AWARD WINNING NUCLEAR RACES COURSE, BRENTWOOD, ESSEX
The Wild Forest is a place for all ages (from 6yrs+) to train, get fit & have fun
Our philosophy in training and working with children and students is to inspire and teach them staple tools and techniques that will give them an opportunity to grow, develop, gain confidence and in some cases an opportunity to find themselves.
Simply if we can teach a child or students to:
Climb a ladder, rope or wall, then they can learn to climb other ladders in their life.
Jump over ridges, bars and water, then they will be able to jump up an over challenges that they are confronted with.
Balance on beams, bars and slacklines will bring balance in their mind and emotions.
Crawl under, though, over and down, then they will be able to crawl and adapt to those things around them.
Run for enjoyment, rather than to escape or fend off.
Be part of a team, to delegate, to lead, to guide, to mentor and to follow.
Enjoy the outdoor environment, nature and it’s beauty.
Appreciate that exercise and fitness, can be fun and enjoyable.
These learning skills are examples of an aspect of our pedagogical practices here at the Wild Forest that support all students to learn at primary, secondary and higher level of education. Pedagogy in this very context can be evidenced by the very nature of learning in a natural environment which is educational, experimental, experiential, stimulating and thought provoking.
We believe that bringing the children and students into the forest will bring them in touch with their more sensitive side through contact with nature, tranquillity, peace and inspiration whilst stimulating other children to gain strength and confidence.
