Looking for something different to the usual childrens parties?
For a special, never to be forgotten adventure, a visit to Jack Raven Bushcraft is something your child and their friends will cherish for years to come.
Whether it’s a birthday, to celebrate finishing exams, or marking a milestone in your child’s life, we are able to provide a fun, exciting and educational outdoor party experience that they’ll remember for years to come.
We’ll introduce the children to the importance of shelter and teach them how to build their own.
For the fire lighting element, the children get to try out different ways to light a fire, from matches & lighters, batteries & wire wool, mirrors, lenses through to flint & steel and fire steels.
They will then gather firewood, light a fire and use it to cook hot dogs and marshmallows.
We provide catering for the special day; in fact, the kids love to cook their own sausages and marshmallows on a fire they have lit themselves!
Where do you hold the kid’s bushcraft parties?
Our bushcraft parties are held in a beautiful 30 acre ancient woodland on the Kent Downs near Westwell in Kent. It’s a few miles outside of Ashford and close to both the M2 and M20.
We have a dedicated area for the parties nestled between the trees so that the kids get a genuine woodland experience.
How long do the kid’s parties last?
Our childrens parties last for around 3 hours. We try to be flexible with the timings for birthday parties as we want the children to enjoy themselves and not feel rushed; it’s not unknown for the parties to overrun.
A half-day party usually runs from 10 am until 1pm (ish) or 1pm until 4pm or so.
How many friends can they bring?
Because we want your child and their friends to have a great adventure in a safe environment, we take a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 8 children at a party.
Do I need to stay?
Yes, an adult needs to stay. A maximum of 2 adults can accompany the children.
How much does it cost?
A half-day birthday party is £30 per child. The price is all inclusive and covers the bushcraft activities, refreshments, hot dogs and marshmallows.

We took 8 nine year old boys today for a birthday.
They had a fantastic time. Running through the woods, collecting wood, building dens and making fires. They all love spending time on computer games but they said this was a great party.
Took 4 boys for a 10th birthday, they all thoroughly enjoyed it, loved learning about starting fires, gathering wood for fire, cooking marshmallows, building a den, and running around in the woods. Jo (Bushcraft leader) was really nice, as was Willow the dog.
None of the boys wanted to leave - which is amazing given that normally all they want to do is game!!
Thanks Bushcraft team.
If you are wondering what to do for your child's birthday and want to try something different, we strongly recommend Jack Raven's Bushcraft Birthday Party option. We had a lovely afternoon (and the weather was great!) on 29th June, with Joe as our guide (Willow joined us later :)). We started on time and the kids had a lot of fun in the forest, building a shelter and trying different ways to make fire. The food was also delicious! Thank you so much, we hope to come again soon!
Hi Gary, wanted to send you a little message to say a big thank you for Peggy-May's party yesterday. We all had such a great time and the children couldn't stop talkiing about what a fantastic time they had. Spending time with Peggy-May and the others in the woods and camp made us realise even more how valuable these experiences are so thank you for our day but also everything else you and Jack Raven does.
Our sons & friends had a great time building dens, trying out many different ways of fire lighting as well as enjoying the reward of hot dogs & roasted marshmallows. A fantastic set up in a beautiful part of the country with knowledgeable & patient leaders. The cherry on the top was the company of their friendly Labrador that all the boys took a shine too! You know a parties a success when you're asked if they can do the same next year.
