Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the mountains and the stars up above. Let them look at the beauty of the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. They will then begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education. David Polis
A school like no other.
A school for 8-12 year old wild boys and girls who love days of challenges, skills and adventures.
For kids who love messing about in the woods with sticks, streams, mud, fires and a pinch of danger!
Each day will include various activities, drawing upon bushcraft, fieldcraft and nature awareness and include shelter-building, firecraft, campfire cookery, woodcraft, making traditional weapons, natural cordage and weaving, natural remedies, potions and lotions, wildlife identification, tracking & stealth.
The programme will be adapted to suit the age / skills / experience and interests of the group plus the level of challenge adapted so that those who have previously attended (Forest Rangers in previous years) can develop and enhance their skills.
Event Leaders: Dotty Speedwell-Walters & Columb Thompson
