2014

Regular: Bushcraft Club in partnership with Dorset Forest School. The club is now in its third year and is proving popular. Children are very welcome to come for a one-off session but we are also attracting a regular group and supporting them to build a real understanding of bushcraft and the woodland throughout the seasons. Bushcraft is a perfect medium for empowering children's self-esteem, self-sufficiency and creativity as well as an understanding and respect for their natural environment.
