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 day of video game inspired activities ideal for kids aged 6-12 years.
Players will also get the chance to enjoy hot campfire snacks such as sausages and marshmallows. They can even trade magic items they find for apples or cookies.
Wildcraft Adventures usually run from 9am - 3pm and 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.
Skills You Will Learn
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.
Sharp Tool Use
This is a drop off event, however if you would like to be a parent volunteer, please reach out. In an effort to accommodate all players, please let us know if your child needs extra assistance provided by you, the parent.
We can also run Wildcraft as a private group booking and it also makes a very popular outdoor Birthday Party.
