Family Bushcraft Weekends
Come and play, learn and share together on one of our wonderful woodland camps for families! The stuff that childhood memories are made from, these magical events include woodland crafts and games, fire lighting, camp fire cooking, nature walks and storytelling (with hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows, of course!). Based at one of several established camps around the woods, the events have a wonderfully relaxed, child-led feel, with participants dictating the pace and content of the activities. Families are welcome to get as involved as they like in the activities, and we equally encourage time spent relaxing by the fire! These fully-catered camps provide a unique opportunity to watch the woods transform as dusk descends. Owls are often heard over the crackle of the fire during the night. On the Sunday morning we’ll go for an optional dawn walk and witness the awakening of the woods in all its splendour. You will need to bring a tent and sleeping bag/mat, but anyone feeling adventurous who would like to build a shelter and sleep in it is very welcome to.
We’ll be hosting two camps during summer 2017. The dates for those are:
- Saturday 17th/Sunday 18th June (Fathers Day Weekend – Mums welcome too though!)
- Saturday 22nd/Sunday 23rd July
We are pleased to offer private camps too, for birthdays, family gatherings, NCT group reunions etc. Please contact us for further information and to check availability.

*Please note that there must be at least one paying child per booking. If the only child you’re bringing is under 18 months then please book them on as normal.

“I would just like to convey a very big thank you for a wonderful 24 hours we had at Hidden Woods last weekend. It was such a wonderful experience from both an adult and child side of things. For the adults it was such a relaxing time, as the children always had something to do to occupy their minds, when a child is happy that makes the adults happy. Thank you all so much for making us all feel so welcome.” Janet (Overnight family camp – Jul’13) >>Read more testimonials about us ____________________________________________________________________________ *A special ‘Thank you’ to @MattShonfeld for providing us with some of these wonderful photographs.
