Wild in the Woods Bushcraft

What’s on

Wild in the Woods – family bushcraft

Wild in the Woods

A chance for your children to go wild in the woods this summer, with tailored sessions in the great outdoors, suitable for ages 6 years and upwards. Your young explorers can learn all about the habitats at Holkham and burn off some energy with den building, scavenger hunts and outdoor craft activities.
Due to the very dry conditions and high fire risk, we will not be creating campfires in any of our session this summer.

Wild in the Woods Bushcraft

The meeting point for this activity is at the Walled Garden gate. Please note that this is a 15minute walk from the main visitor car park. All activities will take place outdoors, whatever the weather, so be sure to dress appropriately and pack your sun-cream if needed! Suitable for children aged 6 and upwards. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult for the duration of the session, which will be approximately 90 minutes. If you are coming by car, parking charges apply. Dogs on leads are welcome.
