Once again Greencraft Instructors will be at Forgewood throughout the season on Saturdays, providing a range of classes with something for everyone.  We may also be running weekday courses during the school holidays, subject to staff availability. 

Our aim is to enhance your visit to Forgewood, by passing on a range of skills geared toward making yourself comfortable in the great outdoors.

Bushcraft skills are for everyone, not just the rough-tough macho types. It isn’t solely for kids either. Over the last three years we have taught hundreds of campers at Forgewood safe, practical techniques & crafts that will stay with our students for a lifetime.
