Acorn Club

TGC’s Ofsted registered holiday experience is for children aged 6 to 11 years who love getting creative, getting outdoors and up close to the natural world.


Each day, the children explore a wide range of Forest School inspired activities including treasure hunts, nature trails, gardening, wildlife exploration including pond dipping, clay modelling, cooking, and nature makes using natural materials.

Acorn Club is a brilliant opportunity for your child to enjoy being outdoors, make friends, and take part in stimulating activities with our enthusiastic and passionate facilitators.

All employees and volunteers adhere to TGC’s child protection and safeguarding policy which includes a full DBS check.

We have found, particularly, that children with social and emotional difficulties respond well to these sessions and are able to participate in group activities and work collaboratively with their peers.

A powerful way to restore some normality to their lives, help them to heal, overcome anxieties and rebuild relationships and friendships with staff and other children.

Such an inspiring environment for children to explore and enjoy natural resources. Such a vital project for urban communities.
