Just like in their favorite video games, kids will be given a number of challenges throughout the day, and all the while be building their shelters before ‘night’ falls and the monsters wake up! Players will light their own campfires, ‘mine’ for resources and use sharp axes; all activities are closely supervised by experienced Forest School leaders. There’ll be plenty of time to get creative with play and imagination, of course. Wildcraft is a full week of video game inspired activities ideal for kids aged 7+ years.

Some activities include:
~Sharp tool workshop – knives, axes, and more
~Shelter building
~Fire lighting
~Wet and muddy adventuring
~Forest exploration
~Creativity, art, and imagination!

Who is this for?
If your child Ages 7+ loves playing video games like Minecraft and Fortnite, Wildcraft Adventure is the perfect way to get them off the screen and into the outdoors, all while sneakily learning about nature and outdoors skills. The game is usually played in groups of between 12 and 20 kids. Children play in teams of 4 or 5 and work together to score as many points as possible, though the emphasis is not on winning the game but on scoring points through effort, participation and being creative.

What to expect
Please be aware that Wildcraft days include several bushcraft activities including; splitting wood with a small axe, fire-lighting, den building, toasting marshmallows and whittling. Our staff are trained and experienced at tutoring children through such skills and will cater each activity to suit the child’s age and experience as appropriate. Your child’s safety is our primary concern.

What to Bring
~Water Bottle
~Lunch and Snack
~Closed toed shoes
~Personal bug spray/sunscreen (we also have some available for use)
~Optional: change of clothes for wet/muddy days
~A spirit for adventure!

The prices listed are on a sliding scale. Please use this opportunity to pay what you are able to afford rather than what is the best value. Doing so ensures the continuation of these programs!
