Bushcraft Courses for Schools

Bushcraft, Wilderness and Survival Lessons

Quite a few of the outdoor adventure companies we work with have started adding bushcraft options to their school trip itineraries. Together with specialist bushcraft companies, they are making a great case for the teaching of sustainability and nature awareness courses. Speaking to some of the experts who have designed and run these outdoor bushcraft courses, we love what they have to offer school groups, and are keen to share them with you. We can offer you courses up and down the country, suitable for any key stage, from half day experiences to multi day adventures. We can even send bushcraft specialists to your school to teach your children on the school grounds. Take a look below or get in contact with us for more information.

Children living in urban areas often have very little contact with the great outdoors. Our woodlands and hills, rivers and streams are not part of their daily life, and many kids are completely detached from the natural world. Traditional residential activity holidays are great for getting school kids out in the fresh air, getting muddy, but a new breed of outdoor adventure trips are gaining serious momentum - the bushcraft trip - life without technology!

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the Bushcraft adventure for your school trip.





Woodland Ways Bushcraft Residentials - Scotland


Fire, food, shelter and water would have been at the forefront of our ancestor’s minds when living in the wilderness. Do your students have the knowledge and skills required to make it through a night or two in the woods? Join us on one of our Scotland Bushcraft residential trips and get a chance to find out! All of our sessions and programmes are designed to be fun and accessible. Where applicable, links are drawn between the national curriculum and the task in hand, so students and teachers see the benefit of applied learning, and how their classroom studies relate to the natural world. Beyond the curriculum and adventurous elements of bushcraft, our programmes provide students with the opportunity to develop skills and have new experiences that transcend the traditional...

So what is Bushcraft?

A bushcraft school trip is primarily designed to get children out of the classroom and into the wild (or as wild as we get in the UK), for a true nature experience. By the end of the course, especially if you are giving them a multi day experience, your school group will have a better understanding of our natural environment, and the children will have gained some practical and valuable outdoor skills. The type of knowledge that would have been commonplace to among our ancestors, but which many of us would now struggle with.

The typical school bushcraft trip will be aimed at beginners, giving everyone a chance to try lots of fun and challenging activities. Pupils will be taught how to safely enjoy a range of outdoor crafts, including camping and survival. Specific topics will include foraging for food, food preparation – build an open fire to keep you warm and to fill your tummies by cooking fish or meat, shelter building – guess where you are sleeping tonight! Learn to make a safe and secure shelter to keep you dry and warm, sourcing and filtering water, making tools out of natural materials, identifying plants and trees, tracking and navigation skills, crafts and much more.
