A SUMMARY

A chance for young people to learn bushcraft skills and play a range of outdoor games. We will explore natural fire-making methods, learn how to build shelters, identify hazards and opportunities for survival in the wild. There will also be lots of fun games and a chance for participants to engage in wild play in a safe, facilitated outdoors environment. August 10th: Survival in the Wild - learning ancient skills on how to survive in the wild, working with the four principles of survival: shelter, fire, water and food. August 11th: Nature as our Muse - a day full of arts and crafts using nature as our method of exploration: painting, working with clay and making lots of cool stuff! Please wear warm, waterproof clothing and bring a packed lunch and a drink. Pick up and drop off at Horam Village car park. Your child will be met there by our facilitators and the group will walk down the Cuckoo Trail to our site, arriving decompressed and ready for the day!

About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Sacred Earth

Hello, I'm Phil Greenwood. I am the founder of Sacred Earth. I'm a former Royal Marine Commando but have spent the last 20 years working with young people in outdoor education. I'm an experienced group facilitator, mentor and naturalist. I'm also part of the global 8 Shields nature mentoring movement and the Helpers' Mentoring Society. I strongly believe that our young people need rites-of-passage programmes to help them find their place in the world. At Sacred Earth we do just that. Our programmes help young people develop their social and emotional intelligence through a range of experiential learning programmes. We encourage creativity, community, ingenuity and a deep connection with the natural world.

Learning aims

Natural intelligence

Strengths to develop

The day will be packed full of outdoor physical activities, like shelter building and animal tracking. We will also play some games and participants will have use of our jungle gym.

Cancellation

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.

No refunds are given except in the case of a cancellation by the Mentor.


Cancel up to 14 days in advance for a full refund, or 7 days in advance for a 50 per cent refund.
