Who’s it for?
If you are a home educator and want to add an inspiring, nature based outdoor skill set and knowledge base to your child’s education, then Jack Raven Bushcraft can help!
What will your child do?
First off, we will work with you to design an exceptional bushcraft experience for your child. Activities can be arranged for individuals or a small group and can last from 1 day to 5 days.
We can cover a multitude of topics, not limited to:
- Learning how to use and maintain tools such as knives, axes and saws,
- Responsibly lighting fires using materials found around us,
- Building shelters from natural and manmade materials,
- Finding, filtering and purifying water,
- Identifying trees & plants and understanding what they can be used for,
- Tracking and nature awareness,
- Carving implements such as butter knives, spatulas and spoons,
- Weaving bark,
- Making string from stinging nettles,
- Identifying, preparing and eating wild foods.
We place a strong emphasis on woodland management, natural history and respect for the woodland and environment throughout all of our activities.
Will my child be safe?
We are acutely aware of your child’s well being and safety and therefore when you and your child take part in our activities, we will :
- Carefully explain how to avoid accidents,
- Teach the children and adults how to use tools correctly,
- Give the children lots of opportunities to practice activities safely,
- Give the children the confidence to ‘have a go’ and ask for help when it’s needed.
How much will it cost?
We are delighted to be able to provide a 20% discount to the home education community and offer a single day bushcraft experience at £60 for an adult and child. We need a minimum of 4 adults and 4 children to run an activity day.
We will consider further discounts for group bookings, multiple bookings or bookings lasting a few days.
