Goodleaf – 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.
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. These family bushcraft adventures will give you the opportunity to take time out and really enjoy the special experience of being in the natural world. Led by Matt, our experienced outdoor leader, the emphasis will be on enjoying the great outdoors, foraging, collecting and simply having a lovely time whilst picking up some basic bushcraft skills.
We’ll provide everything you need and of course drinks and Goodleaf flapjack are on offer for downtime relaxing by the campfire.
Dates for summer 2017 are
Thursdays – 20th July, 27th July, 3rd August, 10th August, 31st August
Wednesday – 16th August
Session times are:
10 am to 1 pm
2 pm to 5 pm
Cost £25 per person age 8 and over.
As the name implies, our family bushcraft adventures are aimed at families who want to enjoy time together in the great outdoors.
There always needs to be at least one adult (18 and over) booked with children. If you’d like to have a birthday party in the woods or bring a group, please let us know as we can do things a little differently to suit the group.
Please read our ts and cs here.
Goodleaf family bushcraft adventures take place in woodland at Ninham Country Holidays, close to Shanklin and Lake. Ninham is a lovely, family run campsite on on a working farm. The piece of woodland is secluded and away from the main campsite. Contact us for full directions when you book or see map below.
