BUSHCRAFT PARTIES

Bushcraft and Archery Birthday Parties

Why not give your kids, big or small, a party with a difference? 
With our Bushcraft Party package they can come to our camp (Wormley West End, Hertfordshire near Hertford & A10 London), and have their own mini-adventure.  
Suitable for age 8 - adults

Bushcraft & Archery Party Overview

Over 3 hours, with expert guidance, the party will first learn the ancient skill of Archery from a GB Archery Qualified Instructor. They can have a competition if they wish, or just shoot for fun on our traditional and 3D targets. After this they will learn how to light a camp fire safely using a flint and steel, learn what wood to use and from which trees, and experience the satisfaction of successfully lighting it themselves. They will then learn techniques for maintaining the fire, so that they can end the party by cooking popcorn for themselves over the fires they made.

Our site has covered tree stump seating around the woodland campfire. We provide a main woodland campfire under a covered area so there's no need to get wet in bad weather.

The standard party package as above lasts three hours and costs £295 for the basic package or £365 with food and drinks provided.

We provide GB Archery qualified instructors, and all our Instructors have passed enhanced CRB checks, and are first aid qualified.
"Thank you so much for Sophia's wonderful birthday party. All the girls enjoyed it, even the ones who claim to not like the outdoors! Several said it was the best birthday party they have ever been to. You made it really fun and interesting for them and us.  Thanks again"
