Family firecraft event

Family Firecraft in the Woods - half-term event FREE FOR KIDS


Thursday 15 February, 10.15am to 1.15pm, Sharpham Woodland Campsite kitchen

Join us under our wooden shelter to enjoy bushcraft and learning how to make a log fire!

We will take a short walk around the beautiful Sharpham landscape to collect our own kindling.

Then kids will learn how to make small fires safely, using fire steels and tinder.

We'll cook - and eat! - some campfire treats like Scotch pancakes and trail bread, and we'll make hot chocolate and herbal teas too.

Don't worry: there are toilets, running water and drinking water onsite nearby.

This day is for you if you:

  • Are looking for a fascinating, family, half term event in a beautiful, outdoor, woodland setting
  • Would like to learn about safe firelighting and campfire skills
  • Like exploring in the woods

What should you bring?


  • 1 hot drink provided towards the end but please bring further drinks and snacks for the children if needed (1 or 2 marshmallows and a bit of campfire bread also provided)
  • Check the weather - Waterproofs and warm layers, including hats, gloves and warm socks
  • Sturdy outdoor shoes - you will be in a woodland with potentially muddy footpaths
