Big Hat Bushcamp Reopening

We are very pleased to announce that we have now reopened for bushcraft courses for single-households and small school-groups.

Up to ten members of one household or school-group can come out for half day or full day bushcraft sessions, covering activities such as matchless firelighting, campfire cooking, shelter building, woodcraft, and more.

This is a great way to get out of the house, escaping to beautiful private woodland in the Runnymede area.

To make our courses more accessible to small families at this time we have halved the minimum fees to £125 for a four hour session and £200 for an eight hour session.

Campfire lunch/ dinner is included.

Courses run 7 days a week.
