Good news! We’ve reopened and we’re taking bookings for small, private group bushcraft events for kids and we’ll soon also be running our children’s bushcraft birthday parties for kids aged 7+. Hoorah – who’s up for an outdoor, fun-fuelled adventure?! 🤟
E-vouchers now available to order online to use for any of our outdoor activities in Bridgend, valid for 1 year and any value you choose.
Outdoor kids bushcraft birthday parties are back! 🔥
Fire lighting, shelter building, marshmallow toasting fresh-air-fuelled fun! All Adventurers leave with a certificate too 🙂
Kids’ bushcraft birthday parties will be returning in August!
With the Welsh Gov announcement this morning that children under 11 will not have to social distance from Monday, we’ll be bringing back our popular bushcraft birthday parties!
**update: Welsh Government guidance has now changed allowing us to expand the types of events that we can run. For the latest info, please see this blog post. Thank you**
To fit with new Welsh Government guidelines, we’ve adapted our event formats to run events for one household or extended household “bubble” at at time.
So this is a unique opportunity for you to book a private session with us with a dedicated instructor, until we can increase our event numbers and take group bookings again. We’re running events for couples, small families & extended household “bubbles” – so there’s something for everyone.
As all of our “household only” events will require adults to be present & our group numbers will be small, it means we’re able to temporarily lower the age limit for some of our activities.
Looking for an alternative gift for a loved one? Or a gift to yourself for when we’re out of lockdown? An axe throwing gift voucher is guaranteed to get a big thumbs up!
Come & join us for some bushcraft & archery fun in Bridgend with our autism friendly events.
We have experience working with children and adults on the autistic spectrum through our work with schools and community groups. We’d like to make our sessions more accessible. So we’re trialling some autism friendly bushcraft & archery events, which you can book on to individually. And we’ll make them a regular event if there’s interest and demand for them.
Events are 1.5 hours and tickets are £15. You can buy tickets on Eventbrite here:
Additional information about autism-friendly sessions
Who can come to autism-friendly sessions?
These sessions are for anyone on the autistic spectrum who would prefer this session.
You do not need a diagnosis.
Sessions are for children aged 7+ and adults.
You are welcome to book tickets for siblings who are not on the autistic spectrum.
Can parents / carers / support workers come along?
Yes, we would encourage you to come along.
Children aged under 18 must have a parent / adult supervising them.
1 adult to supervise up to 3 children please.
Your role is to offer support rather than being there to participate. Tickets are charged for one participant and one person to accompany them (included free of charge)
What makes it an autism-friendly session?
Activities are carried out by instructors who have completed autism-awareness training.
Sessions are more structured and we keep noise to a minimum.
There will be space available within the woodland as “quiet areas” for anyone needing some time out during the session – no one is pressured to take part.
What is the environment like where activities take place?
Activities take place in a private woodland in Bridgend (near Laleston)
It is quiet and not open to the general public.
We have a roundhouse shelter area to sit in, which will have a campfire.
Who can I contact for more information or with feedback?
If you have any questions or feedback about the information on this page or our sessions, please call or text Rachel on 07716 462 983 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy New Year!
Thanks for all of your support in 2019. And we’re looking forward to running many more adventures for you over the next year.
Wishing you lots of happy trails & outdoor adventures in 2020!
