WHAT WE OFFER

Go Wild In The Woodland

Get in amongst the leaves and experience the ‘wild’ forest with our regular sessions inspired by Forest School. Great for children and their adults, if you’re going camping as a family for the first time and want to get used to being in the woods, or just want to get closer to nature in a fun and supportive environment with other people. Takes place over a block of 6 regular sessions.

Bushcraft

Suitable for older children and adults – gain experience of survival techniques and tools. It’s all about the elements: from building shelters and lighting fires to outdoor cooking and becoming comfortable in spending more time outdoors.

Training

As part of our social purpose we will be training others to lead groups in the ‘wild’ natural environment.

If you think you would like to volunteer to help support our sessions or to share your outdoors skills, let us know,

Stay in touch! It’ll only take a minute
