Family Bushcraft at Hamsterley Forest details...

Open 21 Apr - 27 Oct

Do your children enjoy an adventure? Why not book a Family Bushcraft session in the heart of the Durham Dales in Hamsterley Forest and inspire your kids to love the outdoors.

Join the bushcraft sessions when you can build a shelter, light a fire, cook a meal, make something to take away with the trained Rangers. You’ll need to build a shelter, your own den in the woods and with all the activity you’ll soon be hungry so you’ll need to build and light your own camp fire (but no matches!), cook your food and then sitting round the fire you can have a go at making an elder-wood pea-shooter!

Eat before you arrive and bring your own food to BBQ over your fire. If you want a Sleepover night out in the forest see the website for dates. Plus check out the other activities at the forest including, cycling, geocaching, walking trails, and star gazing.

The activity leader, Bruce Ferguson, is qualified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning to teach bushcrafts to groups and has been involved in bushcrafts and teaching woodland skills for over 30 years. All the leaders are DBS checked.

The cost is £40 per family and £10 per extra person, with a maximum of 2 children per adult. Children need to be over 5 years. Booking is essential.
