Fire lighting & campfire cooking @ The Ercall nature reserve

02 August 2018, 10:30 - 12:00 (Add to calendar)

Ignite the spark! Kick the school holidays off in style with this fun, safe session in fire lighting and Bushcraft for kids aged 6-11years

Our popular fire lighting events, teach children all about the joys of Bushcraft and how to master the art of fire lighting outdoors in nature. Our fully qualified team will demonstrate natural survival technique and supervise as the kids work together to create their own fire.

Children will learn basic natural fire lighting techniques, have a go at crating their own fire safely, and work in teams to rustle up tasty treats that they then cook over a fire they have built themselves. 

What if my child is under 5 or I have siblings of different ages?

This event is appropriate for children aged 6 – 11 years. Do not worry however we run our under 5’s Wildlings session at the same time in the same location.  Click here to book your child on to the Wildling session


Shropshire Wildlife Trust own part of The Ercall Nature reserve. The parking and meeting point for this event is a layby opposite the Buckatree Hall Hotel, Telford, TF6 5AL. If you park here and you will see signage and a track for the Ercall, however there will be someone there to meet and greet you for the event.

For really small children and people with limited mobility we have closer parking up the track, if you head to the same meeting point described above our volunteer or event leader will happily direct you to appropriate parking.
