Extraordinary School for Kids (8-12 yrs)
A day of challenges, skills and adventures for kids who love messing about in the woods with sticks, streams, mud, fires and a pinch of danger! Plus weaving, crafting, foraging, cooking and wild potions and lotions for those who dream of hedge witches and bandit queens!
Each day will focus on different activities, drawing upon bushcraft, fieldcraft and nature awareness and including shelter-building, firecraft, campfire cookery, woodcraft, making traditional weapons, natural cordage and weaving, natural remedies, potions and lotions. We want to ensure there is lots of variety so we may run special activities such as Canoeing. Ask us for more details for the day you are interested in...
