Woodland Adventures

The day will be an inspiring mix of exploration, bushcraft, fire lighting, and natural arts and crafts. Explore the woodland environment and learn to use tools to make things out of natural materials. Age appropriate projects will give each child something to take home with them.

Session outline

After arrival, we will “tune in” using our senses and feel a deepening connection to nature. Throughout the day we will discover the properties and possibilities of creating things from a variety of natural materials.

Whilst crafting our projects we will learn about safe tool use, discover the secrets behind effective fire lighting and embrace the joys of exploring the woods.

The detail and level will be adapted to be age appropriate. In addition, pupils will develop their team working and communication skills. All sessions are designed with holistic learning in mind and aim to develop the heart, head and hand. A culture of care and respect for ourselves, each other, and the environment are encouraged throughout.

"I just wanted to thank you again for our Bushcraft Camp this week. It was just brilliant- it was so wonderful to see the children enjoying every single part of the camp and taking risks that they'd never otherwise have taken at this age. The new location is great- they loved being able to explore the area. I am always nervous about how the children will react to sleeping away from their parents for the first time, but I think the combination of the excitement about the activities and the atmosphere that you create seems to override all their worries. It has been the highlight of my school year and I'm sure it has been the highlight of theirs! Especially with the new 'rigorous' testing and standards that have been introduced this year, I was feeling a bit disheartened with it all, but this made me feel like we had provided the children with a genuine and meaningful learning experience."
