SCHOOL VISITS

We travel to your school so you don't have to!  Whether it’s a link with the curriculum such as the Stone Age, explorers or a team building session, we will put together an event that will be engaging and involve your children in hands on learning.  

"The days at our school exceeded expectations. The children were thoroughly engaged and loved the practical aspects, they have already been requesting a return visit! The children remained enthusiastic as they were not too tired from travelling to another location.  This should be an established part of the curriculum", Celia Pelly , St Clement and St James C of E Primary School

DAY TRIPS

If you would like to travel away from school we will help find the best location for your event. The sessions will be carefully structured, whether for team building or links with the curriculum. 

"The feedback from the children was very positive.   They felt they had a fun day with fun and learning about map reading. I thought there was a good balance of work and learning and breathing time for the children",

Dorothea Van Breda, St Michael Steiner School.

RESIDENTIAL CAMPS

As overnight stays are currently not allowed due to government  guidelines,  we can find somewhere local to your school for  multiple day trips.  

 

" The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The two days met our expectations as the children took a lot in and had a lot of fun in the process. I particularly enjoyed watching the children during their final group challenges, they had built up enough confidence in themselves to take control of the situation and use their new found skills. I would recommend London Bushcraft to other schools", Tom Telford, St Dunstans

What people say?

"London Bushcraft have created engaging hands-on learning experiences for our KS2 pupils for a number of years. Our children enjoy experiences including lighting outdoor fires using stone age methods, cooking foraged food (e.g. nettles) and then eating. The hands on learning experiences, excellent resources and brilliant educators make the learning memorable. London Bushcraft shape the activities to meet our curricula needs. As a serving headteacher I can't recommend them highly enough", Matt ball, Headteacher, Bishop Gilpin C of E Primary School

"We had a wonderful day with London Bushcraft when they came to run survival skills workshops with our Year 6 children. The London Bushcraft staff were knowledgeable and so well prepared for all eventualities and weather. The children absolutely loved the activities and enjoyed building fires, making bread and constructing shelters. It was great how Wendy linked the day to our class reading book - this was such an excellent link for the children. Thank you for an excellent survival skills experience. We would highly recommend it", Coral Powell, Hotham Primary School

"The survival days at our school exceeded expectations. The children were thoroughly engaged throughout. The children loved the practical aspects and were talking about it the next day, they have already been requesting a return visit! It was great that London Bushcraft can come to the school, as our younger children remained enthusiastic as they were not too tired from travelling to another location.  Thank you for organising everything. This should be an established part of the curriculum", Celia Pelly , St Clement and St James C of E Primary School

“A really well lead, engaging session that was relevant to out hunter gatherer book (Wolf Brother) that we are currently reading in year 5. We would love to book this in again for next year at around the same time as it is a really great addition to our English curriculum. ”, Damian Oliver, Bishop Gilpin School 

"The feedback from the children was very positive. They felt they had a fun day with fun and learning about map reading. I thought there was a good balance of work and learning and breathing time for the children", Dorothea Van Breda, St Michael Steiner School. 

Today I was amazed at the different things we learnt about, including what we learnt about the plants. The day was excellent; our teacher was good. The young people said that they would rate the day 30 out of 30. We made nettle soup and berry bread with jam and it was tasty. The day went very well. 100/100." June Greene, Community Links coordinator/ teacher 

"I thought the event was fab! We got all of the learning objectives and enjoyment we wanted from the course. Thank you for all your hard work. We hope you'll come back again next year. One student told me 'It was the best day I have ever had at school.'"Matt Birch, deputy head at Bishop Gilpin Primary School, Wimbledon. 

"Many thanks for last week, myself and the school were very happy with the end result and the children had a great time. I was very pleased with the outcome of the event, especially given the short notice of the booking. The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves which was the main purpose of the trip. The two days met our expectations as the children took a lot in and had a lot of fun in the process. I particularly enjoyed watching the children during their final group challenges, they had built up enough confidence in themselves to take control of the situation and use their new found skills. I would recommend London Bushcraft to other schools", Tom Telford, St Dunstans
