Wild Ways

October 10, 2016

Wild Ways is the recreational side of In Our Element offering a variety of exciting and enriching activities are offered for young people and adults.

These can take place at one of our sites, on private land with owner’s permission or at local parks and common land.

These activities help subsidise the educational work of In Our Element helping keep costs as low as possible for schools and other referrers.

The range of activities include:

  • Holiday activities – Woodland themed, action packed days for children of all ages with a Forest School approach.
  • Family days and camps – Activity days and camps run for families to take part in.
  • After school clubs – Hour long clubs can be hosted at any school.
  • Adult skills courses – Courses in bushcraft and survival skills for adults, day long or overnight camps.
  • Forest School CPD – Skills based sessions for Forest School leaders wanting to develop their practical skills.
  • Canoe trips and expeditions – Canoe based day trips or multi day expeditions in the UK and overseas.

What they’re saying…

“Taking part in Wild Ways both as an after school activity and on a week long course in the summer holidays has been the most positive experience for my son. The benefits of spending time in nature and the learning from the engaging, practical  activities have been so apparent, not least in relation to confidence and self esteem.  Thank you Wild Ways for running such thoughtfully designed activities in such a lovely manner  – you are making a real difference.”

“I really loved my bushcraft party, especially the cooking. It was really fun having this experience in the wild. I think this would be a great school for survival.”
