Children's Parties

Learning With Nature hosts children's birthday parties, for children of 4 years and over, in the beautiful setting of Westonbirt Arboretum.  

We have a range of different party themes to suit everyone.

Everyone has a chance to toast something over an open fire.  Food and drink is provided with all the parties.​

A standard party lasts two hours and the children get to explore amongst the trees, whilst taking part in a variety of games and activities, and cook over an open fire.

If the birthday child has a particular interest in the outdoors, or animal they like, let us know before the party and we will see if we can adapt some of the activities.


"Oscar and Oscar and all their friends (and parents!) absolutely loved their Westonbirt birthday party. Thank you very much for such a memorable and exciting forest adventure party. It was very well organised and Henry and Sam were just wonderful, they really made it a fun, engaging and special adventure." Shira Wilkins, 20th January 2020.
