Get your hands dirty and develop your bushcraft skills, cook up a feast and build your own shelter in the wilderness!

We think there is something really special about being in among the trees and connecting with nature, so our forest activities are designed to bring out your inner Bear Grylls.

We can create a bespoke programme for any group at our centre in our tree lined back garden or in private local woods. Sessions available for children from 5 years.

About


Activities include:

  • shelter building
  • outdoor cooking
  • fire lighting
  • making and following trails
  • basic bush craft skills

Your programme will depend on your age. For example young children could make dens for their teddy, whilst young people and adults could cook or sleep outdoors.

Sessions last for around 3 hours but can progress to day or multi day programmes.
