Starting Easter 2021
Who are Fledglings
Fledglings are young people aged 3-5, they meet once a month at the weekend. Fledglings learn through play, have fun in the outdoors whilst discovering how to share, co-operate and make friends.
What do Fledglings do?
Fledglings will spend their time outdoors with each other, splashing through puddles, trudging through mud, running, jumping and climbing. This is the beginning of their journey in understanding and appreciating the natural environment around them. Fledglings will have some big adventures of their own, day-trips will be available to new places in preparation for Pioneers, the next age group, where they will be offered their first camp away from home.
Where and when do Fledglings meet?
Fledglings meet Saturdays 09:00 - 10:30 am, once a month, normally at Blackwater on Rhinefield Ornamental Drive.
