Kids' Clubs for 2021

The dates for the February half-term kids' club week are as follows:

15-19 February

Due to the current situation we are capping the number at 15 for each course, so we can only take bookings for the full five days (which is the best way to get the most out of it anyway).

Cost is £200 for the week, or £180 with the multi-child discount. This covers lunch.

Email to book.

Big Hat Bushcamp Reopening

We are very pleased to announce that we have now reopened for bushcraft courses.

Groups of up to 15 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 groups at this time we have halved the minimum fees to £125 for a four hour session and £200 for an eight hour session, mid-week until the spring.

Campfire lunch/ dinner is included.

Courses run 7 days a week.
