Family Bushcraft Camp (2 day)

Two days of fun and memorable experiences. Learn effective fire-lighting and bushcraft skills, build and sleep in your own shelter, greenwood carving skills, campfire cooking (food included), nature walk and storytelling. Specifically aimed at families, all ages welcome.

Our philosophy is to enable families of all ages to come together, share experiences, learn interesting skills and be inspired by their time in the woods.

The course starts at 11 am on Saturday morning and finishes a 12 pm on Sunday.

Food included (evening and breakfast). Bring your own packed lunch for Saturday.

"We have all felt the lasting benefits of being out in the woods together and the relaxed pace of our time there. The children have made it very clear that they'd like to do it again as would we! I thought that the way you'd set up the facilities there was great; it hit just the right note between home comforts and survival training! We all learnt a lot over the course of the day; from instruction, observation and from being given space and time to try things for ourselves. Thank you." — Course participant

I just wanted to let you know how much Steve and I and the children enjoyed our two days in the woods with you. It was all and more than we hoped for and full credit to you both for having such a fantastic concept and creating it so beautifully. I wandered to walk this morning by the riverside looking at the trees and trying to see if I could recognise them - I'm certainly more aware but still have some way to go but hank you for what you did manage to teach me! Once again - thanks you so very very much!
