This December we are running the Holiday Activities Food Programme (HAF), from our outdoor learning site at Weston Park. Sessions will run daily from 9:30am – 1:30pm, Monday 20th to Thursday 23rd December and are completely FREE.

HAF is a government initiative set up to provide support during the school holidays for families who have children eligible for benefits related free school meals. EKO has been able to secure funding from Shropshire & Staffordshire Councils for up to 30 children (from each council), for each of the 4 days.

Please note that bookings for children who attend school in:

Please note that the Staffordshire link will become active at 7pm 29th November 2021

The HAF sessions will be based at our EKO Outdoor Learning Site and Shelter but also use the extensive grounds of Weston Park. Each day will be different but will follow a similar pattern of learning, exploring, creating and playing outdoors, ending with a nutritious lunch cooked by the group over our campfire. Our activities will centre around healthy eating and looking at where our food comes from. There will be challenges and team work, strong friendships form and the laughter is infectious. We plan on having lots of fun!

Our EKO leaders are talented, professional, experienced and kind outdoor-loving individuals who are ambitious for your kids to give new things a go, to challenge themselves, to learn about their strengths and to develop strategies to deal with areas that they struggle with. We want them to try new things in different ways and to come out smiling, even when they make mistakes. Every day is an opportunity to make outdoor memories that stay with children for life.

Having run outdoor school sessions and holiday clubs throughout the pandemic we are familiar with current government guidelines and are confident that we are able to provide a safe and fun environment for your children to learn new skills, have fun with friends and connect with their natural world.
