Schools & Youth Camps

"Nexus: to be at one with the group to bind to connect with all"

Geoffrey & Hannah

This camp is aimed at young adults and school groups who are looking for a challenge. Our wish is to create an atmosphere of fun and togetherness whilst learning valuable Survival/Bushcraft Skills & creating a deeper connection with nature and ourselves through Nature Awareness activities.

By working together to create and keep a functional camp the group learns essential team skills. Using communication and problem solving techniques the group will be responsible for how the whole camp functions. Whether the shelter is completed for the night or whether the food is prepared and cooked on time, each individual will be responsible for their own actions and how this affects the group as a whole.

This three-day camp can be designed to meet your own group's individual needs and below are some of the things we can cover. We encourage participants to sleep in their shelters to really get the feel of living close to nature but if you prefer you may choose to bring tents.
