Family Wood-carving afternoons at Big Hat Bushcamp.
As our last session sold out we've scheduled two more;
Father's Day (20th June), 1400-1900
1st August, 1400-1900
We'll be carving an assortment of tools, decorations, and toys, and rounding off the day with a campfire meal.
Cost is £30 per head (dinner included), -10% multi-child discount.
Father's Day gift certificates are available for either date, or for our monthly Family Bushcraft Weekends.
We know no better way to spend a summer Sunday.
