The Forest Experience – Two Hour Childrens Bushcraft Session near York


This is an unusual and memorable gift for a group of up to 8 children who love adventure and spending time outdoors; the experience is totally hands-on giving children the opportunity to have a go and develop their skills.  Participants should be aged 7 and over, and at least one adult will need to attend with the group.

Held in exclusive woodland which boasts a range of facilities to ensure an enjoyable experience whatever the weather, this is a totally hands-on experience aimed at children.  Participants will enjoy a range of exciting activities and learn some useful life skills under the expert guidance of an experienced Forest School Leader.

The experience includes:

  • Fire Lighting.   Develop the techniques to light a fire with a firesteel.
  • Den Building.  Build a den together to keep out the elements.
  • Challenge Games.  Work as a team to overcome the challenges.
  • Marshmallows.  Of course!  Whittle a stick and toast a marshmallow; yum!


We would particularly recommend this experience to celebrate a birthday, or as an opportunity for a group of friends to enjoy time together.  We are also able to tailor this experience, for instance with longer durations and additional activities.

Once purchased, you will need to contact Forest Quest to arrange a mutually acceptable date and time for your experience, we recommend planning ahead to secure your preferred date.  Forest Quest will also provide further details including directions to the wood and what to wear.

Forest Quest also run an Adult’s Forest Experience
