Stomping Grounds would love to work with local community groups offering bespoke Forest School packages to parent and toddler groups, youth clubs, or family fun days.

If you have an idea, please get in touch. We will support bid writing to help gain funding for community activities.

We currently have a long term Youth project operating in Chopwell, High Spen, Highfield and Blackhall Mill.

Young people aged 4-14 have been having such an amazing time in the council woodland at the heart of Chopwell. So far they have made bows and arrows, a bed, shelters, furniture, collected and purified water, cooked on the campfire, set up a rope swing and climbed trees.

The project is funded by Lank of Oak and Iron, Tescos Bags of Help and The Tyneside Seedbed Fund.
