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 learned 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 UK that students can visit. One of them, Penshurst Place in Kent, is located in a woodland filled with a magical myriad of lakes and rivers, as well as massive veteran chestnut and birch trees.
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, wild 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.
