Events at Sherwood Pines - Bushcraft Camp

Join us at our bushcraft camp at the heart of Sherwood Pines to complete the residential section of your Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Our five day, four night Bushcraft Residential takes place at our secluded camp in a quiet corner of Sherwood Pines.

Spend the nights sleeping in shelters that you have built yourself and spend the days cooking your food over the campfire and learning new bushcraft skills. Master fire lighting techniques, learn safe tool use, traditional woodworking and basketry and have a go at some forest crafts. From beginners wishing to learn the basics to those looking to master advance skills, we'll make sure there's something for everyone.

By the time your adventure has ended you will have made some charcloth, a leather tinder pouch, a wooden mallet, coat hook and spatula, a willow basket, some cordage a botanical print and some artists charcoal.

We are an approved activity provider for the residential section of your Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and our instructors are qualified Award Assessors.
