Private Family Sessions
These sessions are specifically for families who wish to have their own time and space together without a group setting on the farm, for bonding, fun, calm or playful time. We will shape the sessions according to the requests and wishes of the family.
These are often booked by families who have children and young people with SEN/Additional needs, who would prefer not to have to join groups of other people and spend time with animals in their own time and space
Suitable for those who:
- Love animals
- Love being outside
- Want to feel more confident and/or reduce mild/moderate social anxiety
- Want to spend time together to bond and/or have fun and/or have a calm space together
To book a session you pick which day you would like to go, and add to the booking form (under needs/requests etc) what times you prefer, and we will email you back to confirm the time and the session. It is important for us to hear from you what you would like to get out of the session and any needs/risks we need to be aware of.
We can adapt to the groups ages, abilities and needs. The sessions are lead by staff with an expertise in working therapeutically with children and young people, with a range of needs.
Facilitated by fully vetted staff with enhanced DBSs.
Please do not bring any animals on site, or food and drink (due to health and safety regulations).
When you arrive at Elysian, you will see a car park. Park inside the car park, and the staff at Elysian will meet you at the gate at the session start time.
Sessions are one hour and facilitated by our therapeutic support staff. You will get the chance to meet all our different animals, should you wish to do so.
Children with SEN/additional needs are welcome, we only ask you let us know what these are so we can adjust any session plans as needed to meet need. All attendees must be able to engage in activities safely.
The system will not automatically send you a confirmation email, but if you have paid via paypal, we have your booking!
