“Many thanks for your interest in this year's EKO Sleepover at Pigg's Playbarn.
The event is for children aged 6 years upwards with the eldest children usually being around 12 years old. All our leaders are experienced and qualified outdoor leaders with DBS, First Aid certification. EKO mainly delivers outdoor learning sessions in schools so we enjoy being a bit more relaxed and playful in our holiday clubs.
The day starts at 10.30am from Pigg's Playbarn and we spend all of the day outside in the woods on the Skylark trail doing bushcraft activities - den building, fire lighting, bug hunting, campfire cooking - as well as natural crafts, treasure hunts and fun team games. We come back inside in the evening, after the shop has shut, and have a private play in the playbarn before settling down in our sleeping bags for the night with the younger ones (KS1) on the play mats and the older ones (KS2) actually on the frame.
The next morning we have a delicious breakfast in the café before heading back to the woods for some more outdoor adventures and activities before gathering our kit, our creations and our memories and meeting our families back at Piggs Playbarn at 10.30am. We have a really special time with the children learning new skills, making new friends and trying new things; all outdoors. Above all we have lots of fun and smiles!
