Youth groups


We are keen to work with groups of all ages and abilities, and are able to offer a variety of practical, fun activities to inspire young people to take a greater interest in the outdoors. Our Activity Leaders don't normally work weekends but we can often bring staff in specially at no extra charge.  Please contact us to discuss dates.

Activities are generally tailor-made and can include:

  • bushcraft, shelter building, fire lighting
  • map and compass skills
  • geocaching
  • stream-dipping
  • camouflage and concealment
  • building nest boxes and bird feeders
  • guided walks

Costs range from £3.50 to £6 per person per session (all accompanying adults go free). Click on the activities below to take you to a description page which says whether the activity is a 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or full day session. Then go to the costs and bookings page which shows the costs.
