Although each day will have similar activities, they will offer different aspects of all bush craft ideas…wild food experiences/shelter building techniques and the many different methods of fire starting/building and cooking. Using the different habitats to give the children a variety of survival situations, and the ability to learn lots of new skills…. all lots of fun too!

Costs for summer clubs are £27 per child per activity.
Children must be aged 8+ to attend. Teenagers welcome too!
* clubs require £1.60 bus fares on the day please.

Payment should be made a week before first club is due to start. Cheques should be made payable to Earth Calling. Bank transfer is available on request.

Please make sure that your children are dressed appropriately for the Scottish weather and individual clubs. We recommend that spare clothes, towel and waterproofs are a permanent feature of their wildlife club back packs.
