Hello Muddy Boots friends!

The summer holidays are finally here! I hope you all have lots of exciting outdoor adventures planned for the magical sunshine-filled weeks ahead. 

Muddy Boots is having a summer holiday too, I’m off on my travels soon. Firstly to lead forest school activity at The Tribe of Doris festival. This beautiful participatory arts festival is at Stanford Hall from 7th – 11th August. Tickets are on sale now, it would be lovely to see you there!

Then I’m off camping with the family, I can’t wait! I love nothing more than staying in a tent, cooking over a campfire and swimming in the sea all week! Muddy Boots will be back running weekly sessions from September.

Read on to hear about all the exciting things we have planned for the autumn-winter season at Muddy Boots! 

Have a fabulous summer everyone.
Love Emily xx
