10.00am – 4.00pm. You’ll need to build a shelter, your own den in the woods. You’re going to eat so you’ll build and light your own camp fire (but no matches!). You’ll make your own bread cakes and cook them on the embers; make and cook your very own kebabs and finish off with camp fire popcorn. With the help of your adults you’ll learn how to use cutting tools safely. Sitting round the fire you can have a go at making a willow whistle, an elder-wood pea-shooter or a string bracelet from nettles! Activity leaders are qualified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning to teach bushcrafts and are CRB checked. Booking essential. £40 for a family of up to four. £10 per additional child. Further information: Maximum of two children per adult. Children should be 8 years or over. Bring your own food to make kebabs.
