This Summer, for two weeks only, we are offering a twist on our already awesome holiday club programme at TOG; 4 Days of bushcraft/survival and Forest School inspired fun!
Aimed at kids aged 12-16, each day will have a primary focus, helping to equip them with all the skills and experience required to transform a bare woodland into a comfortable camp from which to develop some key skills for those looking to scale back on the bustle of life, get away from the screen and go back to basics. Teamwork, tool-work, woodland craft, survival skills, resilience, determination, creativity are all going to be required to make their week count! Our experienced Forest School staff will be on hand throughout to ensure everyone is safe, happy and successful through all activities.
We are happy to accept payment via a number of different Childcare Voucher Schemes. If you would like to pay for your Holiday Club booking using Childcare Vouchers, please contact us to place the booking.
We are running two teen summer camps this year. Each day of the four day camp will run 10am – 4pm.
Into Wild Day Camp 1
Tuesday 16th – Friday 19th August 2022
Into the Wild Day Camp 2
Tuesday 23rd – Friday 26th August 2022
Day 1: Camp set up
When we arrive at the beginning of the week, our woodland will be bare and wild. The teams first priority is to prioritise creature comforts! We’ll be working on making a shelter, a fire pit, seating and making the camp a home.
Day 2: Campfire Cooking (food provided)
The success of the previous day will allow the team to look after themselves properly, and what better way to settle into their camp, than to embark on some awesome campfire cooking; get your skillets and dutch-ovens on the heat, and feast like royalty (of the woodland). This is hosted by Debbie Miller, our very own forest chef extraordinaire.
Day 3: Tool-work and woodland carving
The group will now fully feel at home, and today’s focus will be around mindfulness and tool work skills. Hosted by our very own Spoon-Carving gurus, who will take the group through axe and knife work to create their very own wooden spoon.
Day 4: Woodland Craft and wind-down
After a busy week of learning new skills, this day will be a chance to play some team games in the morning, before embarking upon some fiddly crafts using some of the resources from the natural surroundings. A celebration and completion ceremony for all who have invested their time, effort and passion into an awesome week.
