" They learn to light fires, take part in campfire cooking and learn basic woodworking skills. When they see what they can achieve their reaction is very inspiring."

Children need nature in their lives 

Our Natural Childhood report found that more children can identify a Dalek than a magpie. Nature's being exterminated from children's lives - now's the time to get it back.

We can't reconnect children with nature alone 

We’re proud supporters in the Wild Network, on a mission to re-wild childhood. With our partners in the Network we supported Project Wild Thing, an award-winning documentary that follows father-of-two David Bond as he battles to get children like his own off the screens and into the wild.
