Our Youth sessions offer children bags of fun, where they can make new friends and have the freedom to express themselves in a safe, supportive environment with first class care.

This is a 2 hour kids Den building and bushcraft experience, designed for children from 8 years old, it's a good way to exercise and experience that sense of adventure.

Get to grips with basic survival skills, including building a shelter in our den building area, lighting a fire in a safe environment whilst learning about the dangers of fire and fire safety, and of course have some fun and toast marshmellows! 

They’ll get hands on having a go at using flints and cotton wool, as well as learning the science of lighting a fire and keeping it going.

You need no previous experience, just a sense of adventure!


NOTE: An adult will need to to remain on site for the duration and help aid kitting up and de-kitting at the start and end of the session. HOWEVER children do not need to be accompanied by an adult on our Youth sessions
