Wildwise - Forest School, Kids Camps, Family Bushcraft

Forest School is the answer for those parents and teachers who recognise that learning outdoors is a deeply nurturing and stimulating experience for their children. It also contributes directly to many areas of the National Curriculum.

Forest School is essentially an outdoor classroom. Led by Qualified Forest School leaders, it provides a place for nature-based learning and the opportunity for regular structured visits to a woodland site. Each visit involves specific tasks and activities through which children learn and develop a range of personal and social skills that equip them for life. It also provides an opportunity for them to experience and develop a relationship with the natural world.

WildWise has set up a Forest School on the Dartington Estate, Devon, providing a unique resource for teachers. Please get in touch to discuss how your school may get involved.

Established in 1999, WildWise deliver an exciting, diverse programme of courses, camps and events for adults, children and families to inspire and inform you about the natural world. WildWise are specialists, creating exceptional opportunities in bushcraft, nature awareness and outdoor education for the general public, environmental organisations, corporate and private client groups. WildWise's nationally acclaimed courses and events for children and adults have been seen on BBC's Blue Peter, Heaven & Earth, Truth About Food, ITV's Country Lives and BBC's Wild n' Deadly.

Our range of expertise and experience includes camps, holidays and courses for the general public; education events and programmes for schools and youth groups; training courses for professionals working in the field of outdoor and environmental education and corporate events and teambuilding.
