Wilderness Skills for Schools
Wildharmony believes in the importance of high quality outdoor learning experiences for students of all ages. We have experience of working with students across the key stages.
We think that the outdoors has something to offer everyone and we work with groups of students of all abilities.
Everyone learns differently and outdoor learning can often be a way of re-
We offer several bushcraft and wilderness skills packages ranging from a single day’s activities through to week long camps.
Students have the opportunity to try various skills ranging from woodcarving, fire lighting techniques, cooking on open fires, shelter building, safe tool use, wild food, tracks, trails & sign, primitive tool making and nature awareness activities.
All the activities are designed to give your group a fun packed, hands on wilderness experience that builds confidence, communication skills and working together in a positive way.
The nature awareness games will capture the imagination of the group and provide knowledge and adventure about the natural world we all live in.
Single day activities take place just outside Rothbury in the amazing grounds of the National Trust property at Cragside.
For overnight stays we have a safe site just outside Rochester. Students on overnight stays will have the opportunity to sleep in the shelters they have constructed if they wish to do so.
All students will receive a Wildharmony certificate of achievement on completion of their fun packed adventure in the woods.
Wildharmony could even come to you if you have a suitable woodland area that could be used. Our programme is flexible to suit your needs.
Our opportunities for learning outside the classroom can contribute to four of the five outcomes that are part of the Every Child Matters Framework:
1. Be healthy
2. Stay safe
3. Enjoy and achieve
4. Make a positive contribution.
As well as supporting the Government’s “Education outside the Classroom Manifesto” and the DCSF’s initiative “Excellence and Enjoyment”.
All our practitioners are CRB checked and we are fully insured. Wildharmony is a member of the Institute for Outdoor Learning and an accredited training provider for the Open College Network North East Region.
