Benefit From Exploring Outdoors

Bright Woods Forest School CIC provides unique outdoor experiences based on the belief that being in nature has a profound and lasting benefit on mental wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem.

Our skill and expertise are in building one-off activities through to long term programmes that are engaging, beneficial and accessible to all.  We work with all ages, from families to individuals as well as schools and corporate groups and provide a relaxed and supportive environment. 

We are a Community Interest Company based in beautiful Teesdale woodland near Barnard Castle but also work in the surrounding areas.

Did you know we provide regular sessions for children as well as family events and holiday clubs?

We run sessions for adults too, including Woodland Wellbeing sessions, workshops and events.

We love working with educational settings or groups to run sessions using the Forest School approach.

‘‘The children built on important skills like teamwork, communication,
managing risks and showing determination. It was a great success and
I’d repeat it with other groups in the future.’’
