Overnight Bushcraft for Families

Could you survive a night in the woods? Join the rangers to find out!

Build you own shelter to sleep in using forest materials and cook your breakfast on the open fire. Learn fire lighting techniques, how to use a knife safely and how to purify water. We'll search for bats on a night walk, play night-time games and have a go at a forest craft.
