Our Sunday sessions are designed to be three things – practical, informative and fun! We teach children and adults of all ages woodland skills to make the most of being in the great outdoors.
Activities could include whittling, shelter construction, natural navigation, fire safety, wild cooking, basic foraging, natural arts and crafts. Each session comes with the obligatory hot chocolate and snacks to roast on the fire.
Sessions are held at Clifton Country Park and last 2.5 hours, starting at 1.00pm and ending at 3.30pm. Children under 8 will need a supervising adult, children 8 or over can be dropped off.
We hope to see you in the woods!
If kids do not want to partake in an activity and want to make their own fun – great! Andy and his team will be on hand to ensure they have everything they need to make the most of their time in the bush!
To cancel or reschedule, please contact us 24 hours before your booked session.

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!
