Outback 2 Basics

School Trips

Home / School Workshops

We teach both Stone Age education and Bushcraft skills using the woodlands as an outdoor classroom or alternatively can bring the Stone Age to your classroom for an in-school workshop. Our sessions are always highly interactive and hands on. All of our courses promote team building and group cohesion and are structured to meet national curriculum objectives.

Our Stone Age programme is a great way to introduce the Stone Age topic. We offer a unique interactive 'show and tell' to really bring the subject alive and encourage children to connect with their heritage. We pass around the tools, the furs and containers of the past making the Stone Age subject a 3D experience. Choose from our list of activities for your hands on workshops. Get messy with cave art, light up the subject with primitive lamps, learn the process of making a stone tool or build a shelter just like our Mesolithic ancestors and more.

Alternatively, why not plan a Bushcraft trip with us. Bring a group to us for a really wild outdoor day trip or residential session. These sessions are great for team building and confidence enhancing. Students get the opportunity to learn practical hands-on skills whilst connecting to their natural environment. Our sessions are always highly interactive and enjoyable. Activities can range from fire lighting and foraging to carving and campfire cooking and lots more in between. Students can even build their own shelter to sleep in under the stars for the ultimate in wild adventures.

Outback2basics is a great place to come and learn in a hands on way about our ancestors and how to live with nature using wilderness living skills.

We engage all children by getting them to be creative. We challenge and encourage children to get their hands dirty, to problem solve, to work together, to use their initiative, to re-connect and to use the natural environment in fun and enjoyable ways.

Sit a child by a tree for 5 minutes and they will have a great story to tell.
