The countryside can truly be the best classroom, playground and place of wonder. These Wildwise experiences are designed to help children aged 8-12 embrace nature and become young adventurers, with bushcraft, storytelling, den and shelter building; plus vital skills such as firecraft, knife work and campfire cookery. Natural awareness will be encouraged with plant, bird and wildlife identification, learning to recognise each animal’s language and mammal tracking.

The programme is dependent on group size, ages and weather conditions, allowing nature and the elements to determine the activities of the day and how to survive in the wild.

The Wildwise events will be held outside on the Daylesford Estate, so please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.


DATE: 26th – 30th July (5 days). Children may sign up for the full week or join in for single days. Please note there are no overnight stays; children attending for the full week will need to be dropped off and collected each day.
