family bushcraft adventures

You loved tree climbing and now you fancy spending even more time in the great outdoors? For the first time, we’re offering a limited run of family bushcraft adventures in delightful private woodland on the Isle of Wight close to Shanklin. It’s about a 30 minute drive from our tree climbing location in Ryde.

It’s the perfect opportunity to take to nature with your family and discover just how great the outdoors really is. Our next bushcraft adventure is coming soon please contact us if you’d like to book a date.


In the midst of a small piece of English woodland, you’ll learn how to make fire with natural materials without matches, maybe build a woodland den or forage for woodland materials and create your own keepsake of the session; a whistle, stick man or nettle cord for a woodland themed necklace. family bushcraft adventures in woodsThese family bushcraft adventures will give you the opportunity to take time out and really enjoy the special experience of being in the natural world.
