Bushcraft and Outdoor Education

Explore

Surround yourself with nature and find yourself in the woods…

We will help you, whatever your age, have an amazing outdoor adventure through our wide range of  bushcraft and nature immersion activities.

In partnership with Forestry England at Fineshade Wood and with the Lee Valley Park Authority at their Almost Wild Campsite, we aim to get more people outdoor confident. We see the positive impact the outdoors has on mental & physical wellbeing & want to give the whole community an oppotunity to enjoy it.

We ensure our outdoor activities today have a positive impact on the future of UK woodlands.
