"Looking for online or digital trips?"

Home / School Workshops


FSC Centres are all operating in a fully Covid-secure way, following Government guidelines. Find out more on our website.

We are also offering digital and outreach packages as an alternative to visiting.

Field Studies Council (FSC) have a number of UK locations offering a wide range of fieldwork and outdoor learning courses. Bushcraft activities such as fire lighting, foraging and shelter building are available at many of our Centres.

Each location is in lovely surroundings with a wide range of habitats to explore. Many have on-site or nearby woodland sites which are ideal for bushcraft.

We can develop day or residential courses to suit your requirements, or incorporate elements of bushcraft within existing geography, science and cross curricular courses at all ages.
