Survival School! 25th Feb 10am-4pm
Woodland Classroom’s popular day of Survival Skills for kids comes to Penllergare for Feb half term!
“A day of bushcraft adventures in the woods, inspired by Bear Grylls’ recent kids TV show. Open to children aged 8-14 years. Kids will have to choose which few precious items to take into the woods, discover which plants and trees could help them survive and learn to use sharp tools to craft useful items. There will also be a bushtucker challenge (optional for kids) where we’ll be tasting all sorts of weird snacks including edible insects! If your kids have enjoyed our Wildcraft Adventure™ and wanted to take their bushcraft skills further, then this event is the one for them.
Finding water, building shelter, making cordage – we’ll be taking kids through all the essential skills for survival, all in the name of fun of course. They will also get to try their hand at the ancient art of fire by friction! They’ll learn skills from our ancestors that will come in handy next time they find themselves dropped on a desert island… or perhaps on their next family camping trip.
We will be cooking some snacks on the campfire as part of the activities, but children should bring their own packed lunch too. Drinks and shelter will be available throughout the day – your kids’ needs and comfort are important to us. Places are limited, so book early to avoid missing out.
Get in touch if you’d like to know more. Advance booking is essential. Phone James, 07876 794098 or email us.
Tickets are £36 per child and £32 for each additional sibling. For our Survival School events we host a smaller group of kids so that we can give your child more direct attention and quality tutoring, hence the ticket price is slightly more costly per child than our Wildcraft events.
The event is aimed at 8-14 year olds due to the higher level skills activities kids do throughout the day. But we have had younger and older children come along. If you feel that your child would be suited to the day, then do get in touch with us and we can decide if this event is a good fit for your child.
All activities are based around our forest school shelter and surrounding woods. Children will make new friends and learn new skills whilst enjoying a fantastic day out in nature, all led by experienced activity leaders.
Parents don’t stay with their children during this event. Our forest school activity days are all supervised by trained and experienced staff… that’s us. If your child has special needs that you feel would require a parent or guardian to stay with them for the day though, we would advise getting in touch with us in advance of making a booking and we’ll see what we can arrange. We like to be as inclusive as we can.”
