20th - 22nd September 2019

We are delighted to be working with the super talented Deni Riach, Forest School Practitioner and Alan Scully, Bushcraft Instructor Level 4 to offer a very special family weekend in the woods this Autumn.

The weekend will see you learning a raft of exciting bushcraft and woodland skills which will enable you to feel comfortable when wild camping.  Activities will include fire lighting, cooking over fire, shelter building, tracking, woodcraft and the use of natural materials. 


You will enjoy two wonderful nights wild glamping; sleeping out under the twinkling stars with your family, in our pretty, furnished bell tents, perfect for families of up to 4 people.



Friday 20th September

Arrival from 4pm.  Enjoy an introduction to the woods, followed by a campfire evening meal whilst getting to know each other


Saturday 21st September

Wake up to a mouthwatering fireside breakfast with an introduction to the days' activities.  A delicious campfire
lunch follows a busy morning of woodland activities.  Enjoy an afternoon with more activities and workshops.  There will be plenty of time for free play along with some storytelling around the campfire for all the family. 
A fireside dinner will be accompanied by a musician, serenading you as the sun goes down. 

Sunday 22nd September

Devour another campfire breakfast before taking part in more exciting woodland projects.  After lunch, your weekend will start to wrap up with a review of all your activities and the fantastic new skills you've learned as a family.


This weekend is a fantastic opportunity to learn exciting new skills with highly skilled practitioners, engage with your woodland environment and make wonderful memories with your family.

The experience isn't about 'survival'; more about enjoying a deep connection to nature and learning the skills to feel comfortable in a wild camping environment.  Family members will be encouraged to take an active part in helping around the camp; to work together and become productive members of the camp 'team'.
