Learn the art of whittling, practical conservation behaviour and survival skills. Groups will build shelters, light fires and cook on an outdoor fire. Activities will be tailored for the age group and develop primary skills and confidence in coastal settings.

Learn the art of whittling with Forest school-inspired woodworking sessions on the sand. Beginning with potato peelers (depending on age) and advancing onto knives.
Whittling has been shown to promote focus and creativity, interdependence and life skills.
Make a shelter with only ropes and a tarpaulin, develop resourcefulness by foraging on the beach to make shelters stronger and unique. Understand the importance of protecting yourself from the elements in the wild.
Besides the outdoor fire, toast marshmallows and pizza on the flames. Any five-hour session will include a meal as part of the beach school experience, prepared and cooked by the children.
