Based on a highly successful blend of nature awareness, bushcraft and storytelling, these programmes make the most of a young person’s love of and curiosity for the natural world. The aim is to empower the children with new skills, to deepen their relationship to nature and breed a new confidence to continue to discover it for themselves. Most of all, this programme aims to deliver a hugely enjoyable experience to all.

Bushcraft is the art and science of living from the land. It demands that we open all of our senses to pay the closest attention to the world around us. The activities may include fire by friction, shelter building, woodcraft, plants for food/resources and natural cordage.

Nature awareness is the study of wildlife and the practice of getting really close to it. Using a combination of fieldcraft skills we’ll study tracks and signs, explore sensory awareness activities, and use the dawn and the night to locate and observe wildlife.

Storytelling - traditional tales with a wildlife theme, told to the children around the campfire help to make sense of both the experience of the programme and the natural world around them.
