We offer bespoke training courses for your team, whether it is for a school or early years setting. We can host these bespoke courses during a weekday, as a twilight session or on a Saturday. We can also come into a school/setting as long as there is a suitable environment to deliver it. Bespoke training courses work really well for getting a whole team on the same wave length to initiate a change in your setting.
We can offer sessions on a range of topics and we can tailor it to your learning needs. Topics can include planning in the moment, taking calculated risks, maths or literacy through nature, shelter building, knots, building fires and cooking with children, inspirational campfire snacks, tools maintenance and tool skills. We can also develop a session to meet any of your objectives.
The costs are as follows:
A two hour bespoke course is £300, for a maximum of 20 people. More than 20 people would be an additional charge of £20 a person.
A three hour bespoke course is £450, for a maximum of 20 people. More than 20 people would be an additional charge of £30 a person.

We are also able to come into a school and consult in helping to develop a site, at a cost of £100 an hour. This can include advising on risk assessments, designing elements of what to include in a learning space and where best to locate it, as well as advising on sourcing of materials. We can also bring tarpaulins to showcase how to put up a tarpaulin in a suitable space.
