Bushcraft

Want to know how to make sure you can get your fire going in any weather? What about if you’ve left your matches behind…..or find yourself stranded in the middle of nowhere…..we can give you a few pointers on lighting fires, building shelters and a whole lot more – maybe one day you’ll be able to give Bear Grylls a run for his money…!

We have our own team of trained bushcraft, survival and archery specialists and we are members of the Institute of Outdoor Learning. We get booked up quickly & suggest booking when you book your pitch.


Bushcraft Introduction (every Saturday)

Children must be aged 5 and over to take part; if aged less than 7 they will need to come with a paying adult so that everyone can make the most of the session. All children attending Archery sessions, regardless of age, must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
