What happens at a typical bushcraft birthday party for kids?

Forget ‘keep off of the grass’ and ‘stay out of the mud’! At a bushcraft birthday party, we want kids to be kids and get stuck in!

Our bushcraft birthday parties are stimulating, fun and unique. They get children into the great outdoors allowing them to learn new (or should that be old?) skills. And here’s the best bit for parents. Bushcraft birthday parties are educational. But shh, don’t tell the birthday boy or girl… they’ll be too busy having fun to notice!

So what happens at a bushcraft birthday party?

Groups of up to 12 children aged 7+ get the chance to learn bushcraft skills in the great outdoors. Walking in to our lovely, private woodland near Bridgend we often hear ‘this is the most awesome party ever’. And that’s before we’ve even got started! Our parties are three hours and are crammed full of activities. You can choose to either have a bushcraft or archery party.

At a bushcraft party they’ll learn to light fires safely and try different fire lighting methods – this is our most popular activity. They’ll build dens using wood, tarpaulin and whatever else they can find. And then they’ll get inside for the den testing – involving a bucket of cold water – which is usually the best bit! And of course, don’t forget our infamous birthday bushtucker trials – squeals and laughter guaranteed!

Our archery party format also hits the mark, set in our lovely kids bushcraft birthday party cardiffwoodland archery range. To start, we get our guests warmed up with an introduction to archery. Then we stop to have a go at fire lighting whilst we cook lunch. We then return to the shooting range to see who’s on target with our fun archery challenges. And of course, a bit of friendly competition.

Of course, no party is complete without tasty food and snacks. If we provide the food, this includes: provide pork or veggie sausages cooked over the campfire, crisps, biscuits, fruit, toasted marshmallows and delicious s’mores.

We look after our adult supervisors too

We ask two adults to stay during the party to help supervise the activities. In return we keep the kettle on and cook extra hot dogs so you can have lunch too. We don’t have facilities on site for other parents to stay. But there are plenty of shops and cafes nearby where parents can enjoy a well-deserved break.

We welcome parents to bring a birthday cake to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ around the campfire. To finish, we give all guests a certificate to show they are now an accomplished bushcrafter. Then it’s time to go home – if you can get your happy bushcrafters to leave the woods!
