Do I need any experience?

We'll introduce you to your inner caveman whilst teaching you how to use axes, cut wood and start fires.  Once they're burning away we'll rustle up a tasty treat to cook over the open flames!

Our Camps

What would I need to bring?

For these sessions, please wear non restrictive clothing and sensible enclosed footwear.

If you are wearing sliders or sandles, unfortunately you won't be able to take part in these sessions.

What will my session look like?

Upon arrival, our friendly team will check that you've completed your consent forms and that your clothing is suitable for the activity. 

After check-in, one of our instructors will introduce themselves and run through our safety briefing. 

Now that you're ready for the fun, we'll split you into small groups and introduce you to the wonders of fire lighting. 

Before you know it, your sparks will have turned into flames and you'll be able to prep your food. Get your hands messy making bread twists and lather them with jam!
