Dungeons and Dragons meets Bushcraft Adventures for a stag do to remember!

On Saturday we welcomed Gandalf, Jack Sparrow and various characters from Dungeons and Dragons for a stag do to remember. It was pretty memorable for us too! πŸ‘

The day started with lots of laughter and me giggling as the group wandered in to our woodland. I knew from the start they were going to be a fun group.

Back to school

Back to school!

It was Back to School for me too today!

I’m excited to be working with YBC again this year, taking learning outdoors every Tuesday. Today was all about planning and I’m brimming with ideas. I’m looking forward to starting back with pupils in two week’s time!

I’ve also been taking bookings for teachers looking for a different way to kick start and introduce a new topic to inspire their pupils. And teachers looking for an alternative school trip to remember have already started planning it with us πŸ‘

We cater for groups of less than ten to around 60. So if you’re looking for an outdoor learning session or planning your next school trip, do drop us a line! Steph 😊
