Welcome to Kindling

Kindling is a company whose aim is to deliver adventurous, playful and creative experiences for children and young people in the outdoors. We do this by training the children’s workforce and by getting out and working with groups of children, from long term projects to one off events.

Kindling was established in 2009 by Lily Horseman, who has over fifteen years experience as a Forest School Practitioner, Playworker and Trainer.

Lily has long been passionate about inspiring people of all ages to discover their full potential and connect with the natural environment.

When adults talk about their memories of being a child, of playing, of being outdoors, we remember the richness of experience, of freedom, discovery, exploration and adventures.

The current generation of children can similarly enjoy this wide experience of opportunity. Kindling is committed to making this available for children and young people. Flexibility and accepting a challenge is key to how exciting ideas develop and our depth of experience means we will able to tailor sessions to fit your needs.

Kindling is based in the Eden Valley, Cumbria. We work with children and young people in the surrounding region and deliver training across the UK.
