  • Welcome to The Bushcraft Company, the ultimate antidote to the creeping epidemic of cotton-wool kids. This is outdoor education in its most literal sense, where the learning curve is steeper than the north face of the Eiger.

    The Telegraph

  • Living in the forest for a week is an incredible experience for the students. All of them felt as though they had been on a great adventure. Some loved every minute, some found the week extremely challenging, but all of them interacted with the environment more than they ever have before.

    Leicester Grammar School

  • Delightful staff, scrumptious food and an inspirational environment. The ‘back-­to-­basics’ learning experience helps the pupils find their sense of adventure and return to nature. They learn transferable skills in the wilderness such as teamwork, cooking and fending for themselves, helping build camaraderie and independence. The staff ensnare the pupils with their high-­level skills, expertise and humour, catapulting them into an educational and enjoyable few days of bushcraft survival. The Bushcraft team hit the target by inviting respect and encouraging tribal rivalry, and building up a strong rapport with the whole group. We’ll be back!

  • It’s been fantastic. A great opportunity for the pupils to feel what it's like to be in the "wilderness". They’ve learnt a great deal and also enjoyed themselves. As a member of staff, it's been great to be able to stand back and watch how they interact together and also to get to know them. I’d definitely love to come back.

Even with some ‘challenging pupils’ they have kept them engaged, excited and have helped them to achieve all week. The activities have been great and as staff, we found ourselves joining in too! I cannot praise your staff enough and would recommend your company and courses to everyone and anyone who will listen!!

    Rodborough Technology College

  • THANK YOU BUSHCRAFT!! We do heaps of enriching activities at Bromsgrove, but Bushcraft has been one of the most exciting things ever for the children in the Junior Department. I am thrilled that it went so well. Well done to you and your staff for providing such an unusual and thrilling experience. It was quite a risk for us to do this with such young children but any worries were totally unfounded. Year 4 loved it -­ brilliant!

    The Harrodian School

  • Most childhood memories of camping involve undercooked, or burnt sausages and cold baked beans. We join The Bushcraft Company camp where kids are encouraged to forage for and prepare their meals, giving them a real sense of how great the great outdoors really is.
