There are no end to the useful things you can learn in a forest environment, Nature
awareness, self awareness, craft skills, design and construction skills, teamwork
and cooperation to name a few. Sessions can be set up to meet your needs, requirements
and interests. We also run more comprehensive development programmes which enable
us to assess and develop individual strengths and weaknesses. An outline of a typical
development programme is included below.
Outline of typical development programme
Developing the participant’s ability to be self reliant through practical skills
around fire, cooking and food whilst exploring their sense of purpose.
Continuing the development of the participant’s awareness of their basic human needs
including shelter and hygiene and how to provide it for themselves whilst exploring
their sense of competence.
Developing their ability to read the wider environment and what it tells them about
themselves whilst exploring their sense of security.
Experience the cycle of a day and night in the forest, operating as a self managed
community and providing largely for themselves in terms of food and shelter whilst
exploring their sense of belonging.
An intense experience drawing on the knowledge they have accumulated over the previous
sessions and requiring skills in planning, communication and cooperation.
If required we can report back using as the basis recorded observations made during
the programme which provide a unique and valuable insight into the strengths and
development potential of individuals and groups.
We issue a range of certificates in recognition of completion of programmes which
reflects the participant’s individual identity.
Typical session of 3 hrs duration for 10 participants (outside of development programme)
