Youth schemes

From winding rivers to expansive heathland, ancient woodland to stunning coastline – the New Forest has it all.

This makes it a great place for young people to get excited about nature and learn to connect with, enjoy and care for wild places.

Our youth schemes are open to all, whatever your background and whether you’re an individual, group or part of an organisation. Browse this section to find out more about them and how you can get involved.

If you are planning for a Duke of Edinburgh expedition, please visit to find out how you can help protect and care for the national park.
