Great week at Wildlings Easter Holiday club. Lots of fun and exciting bushcraft adventures with amazing and creative young people.
Wow! What a fantastic day in great company with many creative and inspiring women. We began the day check in with ourselves taking some time to connect with our bodies and internal experience. A few of the days treats involved harvesting birch sap, whittled our own roasting skewers, learnt fire starting techniques and made a delicious lunch of foraged delicacies to cook over the flames. Thank you to every one who made it such an enjoyable time together.
A fantastic day of nature connection games and bushcraft skills including fire making and foraging. Fun for the whole family, friends and loved ones in a beautiful woodland setting. Go Wild with your kids! Our specially trained and experienced forest school leaders are excited to inspire and delight adults and children with Bushcraft, Fire Making, Hunting Games, Den Building and lots of adventure and fun all in a beautiful outdoor setting in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. An opportunity for adventure in a supported context and lots of other interesting ways of building confidence, nature connection and a love for the outdoors. Suitable for children 5 and older.
We have created an opportunity for a whole weekend of deep connection, relaxation and nature immersion along with an opportunity to give something back to the earth by spending part of the time planting trees restoring the natural habitat of the area and helping to build flood resilience. Learn about foraging, whittling, have guided solo time in nature and have an opportunity to repay nature for the gifts we receive by planting trees. What a treat!
Lovely home cooked vegan food, accommodation and facilitation from our amazing Live Wild Nature Guides and Treesponsibility all for the amazing price of £120, including everything! For more details click here.
Everybody busy at the first LiveWild skill share for outdoor leaders held in Nutclough woods on 13/06/15. New tools, new skills, new friends. What a lovely day!
Our final day of Wildlings Easter Holiday Club was fun and busy! We sawed and split wood for the fire, played a blindfolded ‘meet your tree’ game and went on a foraging walk to collect edible plants. The children then learnt to use a kelly kettle to boil water and made teas from the foraged leaves. Finally we finished off the day by cooking wood ear mushrooms in orange juice and dipping them in melted chocolate, they are surprisingly tasty!

We had some lovely feedback from a parent about their children’s day on Holiday Club. We’re so glad they enjoyed it!
‘Didn’t know the best place to post, but just wanted to let you know that the boys had brilliant day in the woods on Wednesday. Despite looking utterly miserable when I dropped them off they were returned to me muddy, full of stories and very happy. Since then, they’ve regaled everyone with tales of making jaffa cakes with jelly ear mushrooms, making ink and quills, playing games and hanging out in the hammock. Brilliant stuff, thank you so much’ – Parent
