About the event

Wild Rangers Conservation Club

Summer Programme: 9:30am-4pm

Week 1: Tuesday 28th, Thursday 30th July
Week 2: Tuesday 4th, Thursday 6th August
Week 3: Tuesday 11th, Thursday 13th August

Tuesdays:

With a conservation and habitats theme, we will spend the morning looking at the ranging habitats of the wood using various surveying equipment to collect creatures. We will look closely at the animals we find and learn how to identify some of the main groups of invertebrates, as well as taking on a tree challenge to see how expert we really are!

Thursdays: 

This day is all about bushcraft skills and creativity. We will spend our morning building a shelter like the pro's, taking time to learn knots, structures and techniques for waterproofing. We will also have the option of beginning a creative project, which could involve whittling, weaving, clay or a range of other skills.

Both days: 

In the afternoons we can relax around the campfire, learning how to light and maintain a safe fire of our own. We will also play games and learn to use tools like bowsaws, billhooks and bushcraft knives to work on our own individual projects with the staff's excellent guidance.

General information:

Suitable for children aged 10-17, Wild Rangers Conservation Club is designed to be the perfect way to develop your enthusiasm for nature - from investigating species in different habitats to sharing your experiences by making your own mini nature documentaries. We can adapt the day to what you want to do.

Every attendee will need to wear appropriate outdoor clothing and strong boots for exploring in the woods. They will also need to bring a packed lunch and a snack, and we are a nut-free centre, so please avoid food containing nuts.

Due to staffing limitations if your child requires 1:1 assistance at school you will need to provide an accompanying adult for the event. If your child has any other particular needs, please do get in touch so we can discuss how best to meet these before booking to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their visits.
