Welcome To Our Website (Being Updated 20/02/2023 to 27/02/23)
BushKraft Forest School CIC is a non profit organisation working with people of all ages and abilities. We also work with and in partnership with many other organisations including schools, social care, charities.
We run many activities from children's birthday parties to back to basics camping with all equipment and advise provided.
Traditional Forest School
Traditional forest school is learner led. This does not mean we just let them run wild and boss us around, but we do not set a specific curriculum. We facilitate their learning at a speed and style that suits the individual. Our high ratio's of adult to child allows children to learn and explore the woodland and nature around them.
We also do basic bush craft sessions for all ages, this overlaps forest school with things like fire lighting, cooking and shelter building to name a few items.
Parent & Child / Home Education Sessions.
This parent and child session is run on Fridays as traditional forest school where the children will guide their own learning. We will have a set activity or theme to spark the children's interest but they do not have to sit in one place, they can go off on their own learning experience with guidance of trained forest school leaders and their parents.
There is not an age restriction as ages are mixed, with current youngest 1y and oldest 14. All activities will be ability suited rather than age based.
Birthday Parties (All Ages)
Our BushKraft children's birthday parties are unique and have something for all ages, from woodland arts and jewellery making to survival parties, bushcraft lessons, archery or even 24 hour camps.
Archery Sessions for beginners
This is for the whole family aged 5 years upwards. If your child is capable of safely holding the bow, they can take part. You are welcome to come and see before you book. It can be made a day out for the family or a birthday party session.
Schools, social care, charities and other organisations
We have forest sessions to suite all ages and abilities. We work with individuals and whole families to promote and repair the bonds where there has been a breakdown in communication. We also promote how to cook healthy nutritious food without gas or domestic fuels. Some people reading this may wonder why. The answer is very simple, that even before the Covid hit there were families struggling to feed themselves and their children. We also help both adults and children to work together, communicate and show respect for each other. Show how the family can enjoy time together with out spending lots of money.
We take referrals from other professionals, but can take self referrals if certain conditions are met as we rely on outside funding for this and have to justify how the money is spent.
