Our Story

We’re an independent business based in Bridgend. And we’ve been providing Adventures in South Wales since 2013.

Steph Thompson set up Bushcraft Adventures in 2013, when she was made redundant.

We originally started as Bushcraft Birthdays, running children’s bushcraft birthday parties.

Since then, we’ve evolved to provide adventures for adults and developed team events. We’ve also organised taster sessions, and trained up to deliver archery and axe throwing activities. We also expanded our team. Rachel joined in 2016, and we hope to recruit more instructors in the future.

Book with us and you’ll also be supporting a local, independent business. Join us for an Adventure!


Our guiding principles are to:

  • inspire people to get outdoors
  • make bushcraft accessible
  • strive to make sessions inclusive
  • pass on our skills, passion and enthusiasm
  • always be committed to personal development
  • have fun!
