Family and Private Hire

This an option to hire the Wildcrafts staff and woods for your own pleasure and making this a special family or other club social gathering.

 

We will cover the same syllabus on the Basics course for the weekend.

You will be able to build a group shelter or individual shelters away from the main camp area so in the evening of Saturday you can chew the fat with your friends finishing of with wild food round the fire ( if you catch any!)

 

As this is a private booking and there will be no other courses on this part of the site there is a minimum party booking of 6 students. There must be a ratio of no more that 2 under 16's to 1 adult.

Under Wildcrafts rules the adult must be 30 years of age for accompanying the under 17.

Adult charges apply after the age of 18.

 

So you can have 1 adult , 2 x 17 and under and any number of over 18's in your party.

The cost per adult student is £162.00 and for under 17's is £124.00 a £50.00 deposit for each is required on booking. Please email us with the dates you require as this is dependent on your needs. We will endeavour to give you the dates you require.

Please note another course may be running in another part of the woods.
