Fire, Forage and Games

A fantastic couple of hours with three fun elements suitable for all the family.

Participants will be introduced to the basics of fire ignition using a fire steel, taking any skills that may have been used in Forest School to the next level or introducing it in an age appropriate manner for the very first time.

Next will be an exciting and informative forage for wild foods, medicines and other useful Bushcraft items.

Then finishing with a selection of woodland and field-based games.

Stone Age Adventure 

Head back to 100,000 years BC and step into the forests where our ancestors first learned to spot and use the resources around them.

Go back to an age when fire was first mastered, where foods and everything else that was needed to survive had to be found, made or foraged, to learn skills that you can be proud of.

Packed full of bush craft lessons and games, with links back to the magic and marvel of the stone age, this workshop is wonderful for all the family!

Camp Craft

A fun-filled session and a great opportunity to make shelters that will keep you safe and comfortable.

Participants will experiment with natural and man-made materials to make amazing camps ā€“ for themselves, their friends or even for the animals and fairies of the woods depending on your age.

Learn the answers to key questions: Do I even need a shelter? Where do I put it? What can I make it from? What design should I use? What if Iā€™m just too tired? What if I have no string?

Whether you are a child or a grown up, this session is one that will leave you with skills you can use forever.
