Friends in the Wild - TimberNook Wellington
Program Details:

This program is all about diving deep into one’s imagination with a little help from one’s friends. Children will pick a TimberNook stuffed animal to play in the woods with this week. Together they will be creating homes and shops, building forts, making their very own ‘furry friend’ circus and taking the stuffed animals on an amazing water adventure. Together, they will enjoy many adventures — inspiring hours of pretend play out in the wild. 

In addition to our TimberNook experience your Tamariki will also enjoy hours of play in our creek, and form fast friendships as together they experience epic adventures through the Regional Park to our waterfall, clamber up and over our new rope wall, then splash over several rivers as they make their way to the boundary bridge to spy and feed our resident eels.  Each day is concluded around the fire circle as we gather to share about experiences, sing and cook over the fire.

Tamariki will get wet and muddy during their TimberNook experiences and the New Zealand weather is variable:

Please bring to TimberNook:

  • Large lunch and plenty of snacks and a water bottle
  • Three full changes of clothes including non-cotton layers of wool or polypro.
  • A warm jacket
  • Swimming clothes and a towel (rash tops and board shorts/wetsuit or togs)
  • Sunscreen and bug spray if you prefer your ownShoes suitable for getting wet and a spare pair to go home.  Gumboots do tend to fill with water and wet gumboots do rub on bare legs, river shoes or an old pair of trainers are suitable for crossing rivers and playing in the creek if your tamariki are not inclined to wear bare feet.
  • A large bag for transporting wet items home
