Suitable for Age 8 - adults.

Why not give your kids, big or small, a party with a difference? 

With our Bushcraft Party Package they can come out to our Hoddesdon camp (10 minutes from Hertford, 5 minutes fromt he A10) and have their own mini-adventure. With expert guidance, they will first learn the ancient skill of Archery from a GB Archery Qualified Instructor, and can have their own competition if they wish or just shoot for fun on our traditional and 3d targets. After this they will learn how to light a camp fire safely using a flint and steel,  learn what wood to use and from which trees, and experience the satisfaction of successfully lighting it themselves. They will then learn techniques for maintaining the fire so that they can end the party by cooking either popcorn or marshmallows that the kids will cook for themselves on the fires they made.


Parents can either bring along their own party food and drinks, or for an additional £55 charge we can provide hot dogs and rollls and orange and blackcurrent squash. If you book the food option also we will cook the sausages for them on a skillet over our expedition style cook fire, and will provide cups plates and napkins also. Parents are of course welcome to bring along additional drinks and a cake if they wish. We will provide and cook pork or beef sausages (or Halal/vegetarian sausages) on the campfire to compliment the food we allow the kids to cook for themselves. Please advise of the number of vegetarians, allergies or any special dietary requirements 7 days in advance of the event.

Our site has covered tree stump seating around the woodland campfire.  We provide a main woodland campfire under a covered area so there's no need to get wet in bad weather.


The standard party package as above lasts three hours and costs £295 for the basic package or £355 with food and drinks provided.

We provide GB Archery qualified instructors, and all our Instructors have passed enhanced CRB checks, NCFE Level 3 Advanced Bushcraft (minimum) and are qualified first aiders.

 

The Bushcraft party can be highly customised, depending on the age, ability and interests of the group.  Examples of activities that can be incorporated into a party include:


Fire lighting- Discover and practise old and new methods of fire lighting.

Camp Cooking - Learn to cook a range of tasty treats on an open fire.

Wood Carving- Learn some fundamental safety and carving tips and have a go at carving yourself.
