Learn traditional bushcraft skills
Share and enjoy a new experience. Explore, create and play with relaxing family led activities in our natural woodland. And no need to sleep in the den! Cosy up after your busy day in one of our stylish geodesic domes. The perfect combination of a daytime adventure in the wild and the sanctuary of a great nights sleep.
Day one is full of family fun and day two is aimed at the youngsters as they join Operation Wild Child.
What will you do?
Whittling, splitting firewood and creating woodland crafts.
Explore and forage for woodland greens to share with fellow guests at the evening Hangi cook out, a traditional method of outdoor cooking.
Learn how to build an overnight shelter: sleeping in it is an option for the brave!
Create woodland crafts from grass, reeds and other natural materials to take home.
After dark, enjoy music and stories round the campfire and learn about the stars.
Operation Wild Child is a day of fun and adventure for the younger family members.
Think woodland games, tracking and stalking, woodcraft, wild food and den building.
Adults are welcome too or can escape for a few hours of child free peace!
A tasty campfire lunch is included for all those who stay.
The price includes:
3 nights accommodation in one of our cosy or spacious domes
