'Wonderful, wonderful fun at Bee in the Woods. We love our Thursdays with Simone! Both the kids (5 and 1) love coming and there is something for each of them. Simone is enthusiastic and makes every session fun!' - A Happy Foredown Mum
Join Simone at our beautiful woodland camp in Foredown Woods.
Foredown is our 'wilder' site where you really feel like you are getting away from it all - without having to travel out of Brighton & Hove! The woods are attached to the allotments below Foredown Tower and so are not generally open to the public - making this place quite a secret hidden gem! Our Foredown camp is based around a fire circle, where we have license for small campfires to cook on. There is a wooded play area with a mud kitchen, dens and rope swings as well as a beautiful wildlife pond.
Our Foredown sessions are open to children of all ages and abilities - as we welcome homeschoolers, unschoolers, flexi-schoolers and pre-schoolers alike! From our woodland camp, we provide a nurturing, fun, creative space for children to learn, develop, grow in confidence and have lots of memorable experiences with their grown-ups. Through exploring, experimenting and being part of a team, children will learn about the woods, wildlife, the seasons, themselves and each other.
We’ll be getting creative with woodland resources, playing games, singing songs, listening to stories, building dens, learning about fire lighting and fire safety, cooking treats over the campfire and of course, having lots of fun outdoors! Children will have a magical time exploring with all their senses.
Foredown Forest Bee's runs every Thursday term-time and through the school holidays too.
There is parking and the Number 6 drops off close to the woodland.
From the A293, head onto Fox Way, Portslade. Once on Fox Way, take the first right onto Bush Farm Drive, then the next right onto Thornbush Crescent. Follow Thornbush Crescent all the way to the end until you reach some iron gates. These are the allotment gates - you can either park in the small carpark inside the gates, or parking is free on the street outside.
Once inside the allotments, head left along a straight track through the allotments. We are at the very end - look out for the flag!
Here is a map to Thornbush Crescent.
