One of our fundamental values is to teach people the wonderful opportunities nature provides. The reason? More people spending more time outdoors means more value of our gorgeous green spaces, so they are there for years to come.
The benefits of spending time outside on mental and physical health are widespread – from helping with anxiety and depression to improving short term memory and boosting your immune system. Connection with nature is second to none. It’s what we were born to do!
Here’s what the Director of Fitness Fresh and Fun had to say…
“Andy was efficient in providing sound risk assessments. I also had my own risk assessments specific to our members. Our sessions included: building a safe, warm, weather-proof shelter, carving a tent peg from a branch and finding appropriate woodland materials to create a water filtering system. All instructions given were tailored to suit the four members of the group. Clear, concise delivery that gave a real sense of empowerment. Myself and the other Director were very impressed with the service. Andy was articulate in his approach to our members and kept safety a priority whilst facilitating adventurous sessions, boosting self-esteem and a great sense of achievement.”
We have activities designed specifically for those unable to do the hard labour associated with some bushcraft activities yet still be engaging, educational and fun! For example, instead of building full-sized shelters (a sweat-inducing job for the fittest folk!), we use the same principles to build model shelters, teaching similar skills without the sweat!
See how Busy Bushcraft can help you and others learn various ways to enjoy nature’s playground. We host events at several locations across the North West. Alternatively, we can even find a new venue specifically for your event. Contact us for more information and a price.
What our busy bushcrafters
(and parents) say
We all (including two adults!) had so much fun! Would completely recommend.
Nerf Wars…kids had a great time, loads of gun swops, ‘epic mum!’ was the verdict!
I don’t know who loved this more me or the kids!! Recommend to everyone to come try this !!!!
The kids had an amazing time at the Zombie Nerf event today, thank you so much BusyBushcraft it was amazing, I would definitely recommend this. The staff were so entertaining. I think I enjoyed it as much as the kids and what a workout!
My son absolutely loved the Halloween nerf session in Haslingden. He wants to do it again! Thank you very much for a fun afternoon.
My 10 year old daughter was a little reluctant to attend the nerf games session today but she gave it a go and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Didn’t want to leave! The amount of planning was fantastic and the ‘professor’ was brilliantly in character!
Absolute fantastic event today at the zombie nerf wars… My son had an absolute blast! So much, we can’t wait for the next one!!
The kids had loads of fun at Zombie Nerf Wars today. The guys running it were great fun, full of energy and dealt with 20+ kids fantastically. Will defo look out for future events. Thank you.
Took my son and his friend zombie nerfing , they had an amazing time, the people who ran it had an amazing energy, would go again for definite.
Den building, foraging, fire lighting, tug of warring and friendship building! My daughter, who had reservations before going as it dragged her away from her screen , is now begging to go again next week and had an absolute blast with Bushcraft Andy! So lovely to see her come home rosy cheeked with muddy knees and a smile from ear to ear.
My 8 year old came home today and the first thing she said was “can I go again?” Lovely friendly people who run it and they encourage children to be kids. Get messy, mess in the dirt, climb trees and of course, toast marshmallows!!! They are busy all day and come back with new skills and tired out. Wonderful, we can’t wait to come back.
My son came home literally buzzing from bushcraft today. He has been taking about the adventures all evening. He loved making new friends and learning lots. He begged me to book another session ASAP!
The kids were involved in every moment of it, with plenty to keep them interested and some really neat nature tricks to come home with. My 8 Yr old has been so angry at the world recently, with lots of issues happening around him, this session helped him to come out his shell and go back to the wonderful, confident child I know. Thanks so much Andy
A great session which was suitable for all ages. The children could get involved as much or as little as they liked. So many engaging activities and Andy is very knowledgeable!
Busy Bushcraft is such a well thought through and fun approach to Bushcraft… and as an ex teacher and youth worker I’ve attended LOTS of Bushcraft sessions! I really feel like each session they will walk away with a real-life skill and more confidence in their own ability to explore and be themselves. Thank you guys!
