Run your own educational visit to Bedgebury

We offer two easy-to-use, self-contained Ranger in a Bag activities

Our sense of adventure bag promotes sensory experiences, helping connect children with each other, the environment and trees. 

Our wildlife at Bedgebury bag helps children compare woodland, grassland and freshwater habitats and consider how animals are adapted to their surroundings. There are also opportunities for seasonal minibeast hunting. 

Ranger in a Bag is suitable for children aged 4 – 11, with enough resources for 35 children. They cost £35 +VAT per bag, £50 +VAT for two bags or £65 +VAT for 3 bags.

Each bag contains:

  • equipment, games and resources
  • activity sheets and instructions
  • health and safety guidance
  • plenary activities

We recommend half a day to get the most out of this activity. If you’re planning a full day visit, you can add a second bag, or use our free learning resources.

Available year round, book by emailing

Free pre-visit sessions with a member of Forestry England staff (when available) can help you plan your visit, go through the backpacks and look around the site.
