WILDEYE FOR SCHOOLS

BUSHCRAFT | SURVIVAL | ENVIRONMENT | CONSERVATION

IN SCHOOLS | COLLEGES | UNIVERSITIES

It’s important to inspire and motive young people to connect with the natural world at an early age – especially inner city children – where they may have little or possibly no exposure to the wilderness and nature.  

Survival and bushcraft sessions in schools or based in our woods in Kent educate on how to be comfortable in the wild but we aim to educate and encourage youth to have a sense of awareness and a responsibility towards nature, wildlife and the environment.

Alongside the bushcraft skills, we bring stories of the rain forests and tribal cultures to the school grounds. Encouraging outdoor education and stimulating the imaginations to tune into the natural world. Demonstrations & activities are adapted to suit required timings and age ranges of the young people, normally each bushcraft session will run for either 1 or 2 hours.

 

Bushcraft is an engaging, fun and challenging activity for young people to take part in. Practical bush craft activities in educational establishments encourage team work, communication and problem solving; encouraging determination, boosting confidence and developing practice and patience.

Do you have access to a woodland in or around the school grounds? Even better. This will become our classroom without walls. The trees and plants that were once not taken notice of and walked past everyday on the schools grounds will be looked at differently after nature knowledge is applied.

Our bushcraft & nature education sessions inspire youth to see the world from a different perspective, a wild one.  

Activities in natural shelter building, fire lighting, scavenger hunts, navigation, first aid, search & rescue and hammock & basha training can take place in these wooded areas or on suitable outdoor school grounds.

For shelter building we get creative using tarps or practice putting up bashas, tarps and hammocks.

We specialise in outdoor skills and environmental education. We share our experiences and knowledge on trees, the environment and woodland conservation.

It’s important to inspire youth and motive them to connect with the natural world at an early age – especially inner city children – where they may have little or no exposure to the natural world.

Survival and bush craft skill sessions educate in how to use natural resources to live in the wild but also teach to respect what nature can provide, develop a positive connection to our "non-city" environments and teach the importance of valuing nature.   

Yara has been working with young people since her teenage years working as a Youth Leader, Mentor, Outdoor Instructor and Motivational Speaker.

After traveling to remote parts of the world and learning survival with tribal communities in the rainforest. Yara now shares her skills and knowledge to young people, inspiring them to connect to nature, the environment and to love the outdoors. Her inspiring stories around the camp fire coupled with the sounds of the didgeridoo create a positive energy and strong sense of community. Bonding the group together all with the power of nature.
