Memories such as these are priceless:
- Making a campfire

- Campfire stories
The Family Bushcraft course is designed to not only be a fun few days with your family enjoying being out in the woods, but also to give you some knowledge of the core skills involved within bushcraft. It is a fantastic way to learn together and experience some of the wildlife the woodland has to offer.
This course will start at 17:30 on day 1 and will finish at 16:00 on day 3.
This course is self-catering, so please bring enough food for the duration of the course and a stove to cook it on. Many clients have found in the past, bringing a cool box is useful to keep all of your food inside.
We provide a kettle, tea, coffee, squash and biscuits in a brew box at the main camp fire of the course, under a large parachute. We also have fresh drinking water and a fruit bowl available.
The Family Bushcraft course will take place at an expedition style camp in East Sussex. The camp is situated in beautiful private woodland with no public access with lots of wildlife including deer, owls, badgers, fox and butterflies. We do not have shower/toilet blocks at our sites, therefore all aspects of the course will have a fantastic wilderness feel, using a screened camp shower and a screened latrine in the woods.
We have a car park at the course site where you your car will be kept during the course (if you bring one).
Please note: Each place booked on this course is for one person only, so each course attendee must have their own booking.
Please call the office for bookings of 4 people or more for a group discount.
Joining instructions will be sent to participants of the course 9 weeks before it is due to start, giving details of where to meet, at what time, and what to bring with you.
