Our bushcraft sessions are informative, hands on and, most importantly, fun.
What we do
At Into the Wild, we believe every child should have the opportunity to learn bushcraft and survival skills. As well as practical sessions, we also teach children about native tree species, wildlife and environmental issues, encouraging them to respect nature and their surroundings.
Our sessions are similar to Forest School, in that children benefit from learning in a natural environment. However, Into the Wild Bushcraft covers a bit more ground! After one session, children leave with practical skills such as fire lighting, and the knowledge to identify a variety of tree and fungi species.
Our instructors are first aid qualified, have full advanced DBS checks and are experts in survival and tree biology. Sessions can be tailored to those working towards the Duke of Edinburgh awards or focussed on the current curriculum, introducing children to the new plant diseases biology spec. Into the Wild Bushcraft can be held during or after school hours and the duration of the session is flexible.
