Bushcraft and Nature Camps for Kids Aged 8-14

Survival Camps – The perfect day camp for bushcraft kids!

Now, here’s a school holiday club with a difference. Outdoor Survival Camps that take place 100% outdoors and all about the bushcraft! If your young one loves immersing in nature, tackling a challenge and learning new skills for life, they might just be a bushcraft kid!

Packed with exciting outdoor activities, Survival camps are one the wild-curious won’t want to miss. One day, your child might be collecting branches and crafting a den to shelter from the elements. The next, learning to safely build and cook on an open fire – perhaps using food they foraged from a woodland walk earlier. It’s ‘Smore’ fun than any bushcrafter can imagine at Survival Camp!

Our week-long Survival Camps only include activities suited to ages 8-14, carefully selected to ensure everyone enjoys an incredible experience and using the same tried and tested structure at each location. Children come away with plenty of helpful life skills, maximum fulfilment and memories they will never forget!

What do our survival camp leaders say?

“There's something special about summer camp. Maybe it's the fresh air, or the sense of adventure. Whatever it is, I love being a camp leader. I get to watch as kids try new things, make new friends, and discover new interests. And I get to do it all in the great outdoors! Every summer, I can't wait for camp to start. It's always such a fun and rewarding experience. Plus, it's a great way to get outside!”
