Hallowe’en Mid-Term Break Camp

Hold onto your broomsticks…Ray Outdoor School has some ‘spooktacular’ treats in store! Due to popular demand, our Hallowe’en Mid-Term Break Camp will run from Tuesday 31st October – Friday 3rd November. We’ve got lots of fun and games planned which includes creepy crafts, building a witches’ den, scary spiders and webs made from natural materials, cooking our Hallowe’en haystacks on our forest fire and lots more.

To finish the week of fun, we’ve got our Hallowe’en finale! Keep your eyes peeled for witches and other spooky creatures and catch our special annual Hallowe’en showdown in the forest on Friday 3rd November from 6 – 8pm. There will be storytelling, fun traditional games and some delicious pumpkin soup made from our very own forest fire.

Magical Storytelling at Ray and Glen Outdoor Schools

We had a wonderful evening at Glen and Ray Outdoor School celebrating Hallowe’en with a fun storytelling session. Families gathered in Ray for ‘Fun in the Forest’ and in Glen for ‘Tales in Our Teepee’.


The children had great fun playing traditional Hallowe’en games like bobbing for apples and listening to Hallowe’en tales. Everyone enjoyed the delicious homemade pumpkin soup that the children prepared themselves!


Thanks to everyone who came along and took part. It was ‘spooktacular’. Check out the pictures below….
