Dalby Family Explorers are our forest school holiday sessions aimed at children aged 1 to 6 years old (plus their adults!). Younger children are welcome, but don't need to pay. Older children are also welcome (they will need a ticket), but please be aware these are not true bushcraft sessions, for these please see our Family Bushcraft events.
Set in the wonderful woodlands of Dalby Forest, children have the freedom to move about at their own pace. Whether they wish to go on a bug hunt, explore the beautiful flora and fauna of the woods, read a book or more, have a picnic with the teddy bears, make something to take home, use real tools, cook over the fire, do a spot of yoga, splash in the stream with the dinosaurs or simply laze in the hammock, the choice is theirs.
No need to have a Dalby Pass, we will give you a code to use at the parking machine when you arrive at our event.
We meet at our Explorer Hub in Dalby Courtyard (not the visitors centre) which is situated near the bike shop. From here it is a 10 to 15 minute walk. You can walk or ride a bike to our location in the woods. The terrain is buggy and bike friendly. This video will show you our meeting place.
The following clothing is advised: Wellies/boots, fleece, long sleeve top, long trousers, waterproof coat and trousers. It might also be a good idea to bring a towel and spare clothes, especially socks.
These sessions run on Wednesday and Friday Mornings at 10am. Booking is essential and all children must have a paying adult with them.
Children (1yrs upwards £5)
We would normally only offer a refund if we cancel an event, but if you are unable to attend please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate any changes you need to make.
