EKO Club runs weekly on your school site and is open to year groups, key stages or the whole school, for a minimum commitment of half a term at a time.
It is planned, resourced, risk assessed and led by an EKO leader who is DBS checked, first aid qualified and has the appropriate experience to ensure fun, safe outdoor sessions each week. The sessions take place on your school site and we can help you to develop your site as required. To run each session we would require a parent volunteer or staff member to support the activities with us and we offer parent volunteers a free place for their child when they assist.
EKO club gives pupils the freedom and flexibility to have fun and relax, yet reinforces the learning that takes place at school. If you wish, we can link our sessions to particular topics or themes that are currently taking place in school, or we can offer a complete contrast, depending on what you require and your pupils respond to.
Similarly to our school sessions, activities could include: team games, bug hunting, fire lighting, den building, creating bug house, designing natural art, music in nature, bird identification, plant life cycles, treasure hunts, clay modelling, nature study, natural paints and other seasonal and location dependant activities.
The final session of term is always a ‘family campfire’ to which the immediate family members of the EKO Club pupils are invited to come and join us around the campfire, toasting marshmallows, exploring the site, singing campfire songs and celebrating the fun and learning that has been going on throughout the term.
We have all the necessary equipment, experience, parental paperwork, insurance, DBS checks and health & safety procedures to ensure a fun and fulfilling experience for all. All children must provide their own weather appropriate, waterproof clothing and footwear.
