We currently run two youth clubs, our Parent and Child Club and The Really Wild Club. In the future we hope to introduce a third club for teenagers to gain accreditations such as the John Muir Award.
Parent & Child Club
This club meets on the second Saturday of each month from 10am-12pm and aims to make the facilities at Sayers Croft more accessible for families with younger children to enjoy. Children aged 5 or younger come with their parents and enjoy a different activity each month. Activities are tailored to be flexible so that children and parents can dip in and out as they like. Our Parent and Child Club is free but donations are gratefully received.

Come down to our ponds to see what creatures you can find. Everyone will get a bucket, net and simple ID sheet to help you figure out what you've found! Drop into The Burrow between 10am-12pm to join in the fun.
Sat 13th July 13
Today we will be getting our hands dirty and making clay models for you to take home. Helpful step-by-step guides will be on hand as well as examples for you to copy. Why not make a hedgehog, a bowl, snail or cup? The choice is yours! Drop into The Burrow for anytime between 10am-12pm to join in the fun. No booking necessary.
Sat 11th May 13
Join in with our Deadly Scene Investigation in partnership with CBBCs Live n Deadly show. Become a Deadly Detective for the day, get outside and solve a wildlife crime with our special DSI: Deadly Scene Investigation activity. Receive a special detective's booklet, explore the site, solve the clues and play some fun games too! If you solve the crime you are in for a treat! Activity involves some walking on rough terrain (fields, woodland) and takes approximately 1-1.5 hours to complete so we recommend you turn up from 10am-10.30am at The Burrow to give yourselves plenty of time!
Easter Egg Extravaganza!
Sat 13th April 13
Join us for an Easter Egg hunt around our maze - can you find where all the eggs are hidden? We will also be decorating egg boxes as rabbits, chicks and more for you to take home! Drop into The Burrow anytime between 10am-12pm to join in the fun. No booking required!
Mardi Gras Party

The Really Wild Club (6-10 year olds)

Bugs Bugs Glorious Bugs!
Sun 12th May 13
Join us in may to explore the miniature world of bugs! Lets get turning over some stones, rolling over some logs, and wander through the grass to catch some bugs and look at them through the magnifying glass.
Sun 10th February 13
This month we will take a walk around Sayers croft and up into the nature reserve to see what interesting things we can find to photograph. It will be a good test to see how observant we are and whether we have any naturally talented photographers in the club.
Bird Watching and Identification
Sun 13th January 13
We will be using the bird-hide at sayers croft to test our knowledge and see if we can see anything unusual on the bird table. For those which have no experience in birdwatching we will hopefully give you a little bit more understanding and knowledge on what birds you can expect to see in the garden and what you can do to help them through the winter.
