Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
Mini Medics First Aid Courses for Primary Schools
Boundless Outdoors are proud to provide an all-new Mini-medic course, aimed specifically at children. With that in mind, the course only lasts for a half-day. This can be run at either of our activity centres or a location of your choice. With a maximum group size of 16, it’s perfect for a class to do over a day, combined with some of our great adventurous activities.
The course is kept at a basic level with no use of confusing terminologies. It shows complete respect for the child’s ability, makes it educational and practical, and instils the importance of helping someone who is poorly or injured.
Bushcraft & Survival Skills
Including basic survival skills such as lighting fires, shelter building, knifework and making/cooking basic bread.
