Supplementing the standard curriculum with opportunities to learn wilderness and survival skills, such as firelighting, shelter-building and outdoor cooking, provides opportuinities for pupils to develop hard and sorft skills outside of the classroom.
We work with all age groups from infant, through primary and secondary to college and university level, tailoring bushcraft, survival and conservation work to support key schemes of work or just to provide a fun and safe environment in which to develop nature awareness. We also provide training to Forest Schools Leaders to teach them the basic and advanced bushcraft skills to supplement their training.
In our experience, learning outside of the traditional academic setting can open new doors to all pupils, developing their confidence, team-working and leadership skills which help set them up for life. Teachers are often surprised by the pupils who excel in an outdoor setting.
From short 1hr long sessions to week long residential programmes with camping on our site in the Dee Valley we can provide what you want.
We have strong links with the adventure activity providers in the Dee Valley area of North Wales so can provide: white water rafting; gorge walking; canyoning; paintballing; rock climbing; abseiling; high ropes; canoeing; kayaking; and/or clay pigeon shooting to compliment the bushcraft skills.
