Get Outdoors with the kids
We love to share our passion for the great outdoors with our students. Too much time is spent indoors on x-boxes or iPads. When we were growing up we were able to explore our countryside with ease, yet children don’t have that freedom now. We made camps and had fun in the woods. Bushcraft has enabled us to share many skills that were second nature to us. We run parties so the kids have fun, get muddy and enjoy time spent in the great outdoors.
Bushcraft means working with nature rather than to survive against it. Our children’s bushcraft parties include a variety of fun activities from shelter building, fire-lighting to woodland games all under adult supervision.
The minimum number of children for a party is 6 and the maximum is 12. This number includes the birthday boy/girl, their siblings and guests. The minimum number of adult helpers we require is 2. More helpers are welcome. The two designated adult helpers must stay for the duration of the party. They will assist our Bushcraft Instructor to supervise the children, keep the camp fire going and help with the bushcraft lunch or tea if required.
What activities can we choose from for our bushcraft party?
You can select your top three activities from the list below so we can prioritise them for you. We will always endeavour to fit as many activities in to the three hour time slot as we can.
- Shelter Building
- Fire Lighting
- Camouflage Games (with water pistols)
- Foraging Blighty Style
- Bow and Arrow making (age 10+ only)
- Catapult Competition
- Wild Cordage
- Learn about the Woods
- Natural Navigation
- Bread-making with sticks
- Seasonal Wreath making
It is great to learn some new skills especially whilst having fun with your friends and family.
Where are the parties held?
We use woodland located near Bruton in Somerset. However we can travel to your location subject to travel time and costs. The best thing to do is to contact us and have a chat.
We often have feedback from families who have joined us, that they have continued their bushcraft journey as a family. This kind of feedback makes our day.
