Community Groups & Organisations

**WE ARE NOW OPEN FOR COMMUNITY GROUP AND ORGANISATION SESSIONS AT BASECAMP IN SHIELD TREE WOOD  **

** THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE **

These sessions are ideally suited for Beavers, Rainbows, Cub Scouts, Brownies, and Guides as well as community groups and organisations looking to support wellbeing.
All sessions are aimed at offering experiences where everyone can choose and engage at their own pace. We believe that by offering choice, you can connect more with the natural surroundings and each other and engage more fulfillingly, providing a more positive growth outcome in your wellbeing.
When can we book? Sessions can run as 1 off experiences or as part of a longer programme. These sessions can be booked as follows:
  • weekday evenings
  • Sundays 11-1pm (if no parties are booked in!)
  • we currently have Wednesday daytime free
Examples of experiences
  • Woodland Skills (campfire lighting, cooking, whittling, shelter building)

  • Woodland Crafts
