Wild Eskdale October Activites


by Carys M.

1 October 2019

Wild Eskdale will be running the holiday club during the October break for ages 7+. This will run over two hours (10am to 12pm) and be filled with plenty of activities and challenges to keep your wee ones warm.

These clubs run on Wednesdays and Thursdays of the two-week break and cost £3 per child, per session.

Booking is necessary so get in touch with Carys at or message us via

We meet and collect at Langholm Primary’s car park. Your child must have warm clothes, preferably waterproofs, and a drink.

What is Forest School?

Forest school isn’t like school at all. It’s a growing movement originally from Denmark which encourages adults to let children play. Children get to shape the sessions with their own choices, engage in safe risk-taking necessary to their development, and all the while they learn about the world, themselves, and each other without knowing it.

Research has shown that Forest School benefits social development, motor skills, emotional regulation, mental health, resilience, and more.

The role of the leader is to facilitate play, providing resources and options, and to do dynamic risk assessments without spoiling the fun!

Create a nature collage!

Wild Eskdale will be using Outpost Arts’ wonderful high street hub space, The Look Out (42-44 High Street, previously Blue Moon) for a creative collage challenge!

Drop in anytime from 10am to 2pm on the 26th and 27th of October. All ages are welcome to take inspiration from some of the undiscovered creatures that roam Langholm’s Moor and get stuck in making it out of lollypop sticks, paper and pens, tissue paper, or any of our other materials on offer!

Parents can enjoy investigating the new space or contributing to the collage themselves.

This activity is free, though any donation towards the venue costs would be appreciated.
