What will students see and do?
A leading provider of outdoor education, The Bushcraft Company promises students a thrilling outdoor adventure.
The company firmly believes that not everything can be taught in a classroom and that some of the most important life skills are best learnt outside.
As a result, school trips with The Bushcraft Company take students into the wild and give them an unforgettable back-to-nature experience, where they will have the chance to grow in the freedom of a unique environment.
The Bushcraft Company operates several sites across the United Kingdom that students can visit. One of them, Boughton Woods in Northamptonshire, is located in ancient woodlands filled with ash, oak, beech, lime and evergreen Western Red Cedar trees, providing an abundant environment to explore.
Visiting groups will become fully enveloped in the wilderness, sleeping under the stars in safari-style tented camps and cooking over open fires.
During the day, they will take part in activities such as shelter building, bushcraft, camouflage and concealment, archery, swimming, fire lighting, target sports and scenario SOS, all of which encourage team building and give students the chance to develop new skills as they interact with their peers in a fun, creative environment.
How does the trip link to the curriculum?
The Bushcraft Company is passionate about giving every student the chance to experience a real outdoor adventure before they leave school. It believes that developing character in students is equally as important as creating a framework for academic success.
All of The Bushcraft Company’s experiences help students to grow in confidence while having fun and learning new practical skills along the way, such as the ability to bounce back from the knocks that come with taking on new challenges.
What’s more, the opportunity to put technology to one side, make lifelong memories and sleep under the stars doesn’t just give students a taste of adventure but inspires a lifetime of it.
There’s a wide range of outdoor activities available at The Bushcraft Company’s various sites, all designed to enhance social and personal development as mentioned. Once you get in contact, the staff will work with you to create the perfect bespoke programme that suits your student’s ages and abilities, keeping them busy and learning from the moment they arrive.
