Hey Wood - it's a new site!
We are very excited to announce that we have a new 'sister' site for our adventures in 2016 and beyond.
Bushcraft Day - Salendine Nook Year 8
We are proud to announce that following the extremely successful transition day for Year 7 back in September, we have been chosen to deliver a Bushcraft Day for Year 8 in the Summer Term 2015.
The students will work in teams to complete a series of challenges to provide for themselves as though they were marooned on the site. They will cover the basic survival requirements of Shelter, Fire, Water & Food. Each team will be allocated an area in which to base themselves. They will be given a set of tasks to complete by lunchtime, with a follow-on set for the afternoon. Each task will require members to leave the group to receive coaching on necessary skills which they then bring back to the group to pass on and use those skills. Tasks will include:
- Building a weather tight team shelter
- Locating and filtering water
- Making a campfire & making hot drinks for the team
- Cooking simple food on the fire
We look forward to welcoming Salendine Nook back to our site, and having another excellent day together!
If your school would like to do something similar, please contact us.

Shiver me Netherthong Timbers!
We are very pleased to announce, that following an extremely successful Pirate Day with Year 2 from Netherthong Primary School, they have chosen Eden's Forest again next year.
Our Lepton site played host as a desert island with Slim Jim the skeleton, troublesome sprites and buried treasure! The children had to follow treasure maps, solve puzzles and problems, decode secret combinations and discover treasure (of the food and golden varieties!).
A wonderful time was had by all, and everyone was able to take home a doubloon from the pirates treasure!
