Our Shelter Kit, designed in partnership with the inspirational survivalist Ed Stafford, was designed with the tweens in mind.

Do you want to give the children in your care a break from screens and an excuse to spend time outside? Children aged 8-14 will love this real, authentic den building kit. Learn bushcraft skills- how to build their very own shelter using simple robust materials. This kit can be used in any outdoor space- back yard, garden, park and open spaces. This is real kit for real adventure. What a feeling of satisfaction to know you can build your own shelter. A great gift from parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and God parents.

Not all classrooms have four walls.

How to keep tweens happy, healthy and learning throughout lockdown - without relying on screens? Our children need vitamin ’n’ like never before - exposure to nature, sunshine and dirt - to reignite their creativity, test their ingenuity and provide a boost to their immune systems and emotional resilience. Using professional-grade components, this is our most versatile, robust kit yet - capable of providing shelter for an overnight sleep-out under the stars, a picnic in the sun, a sanctuary, a toolkit for learning new skills and a multitude of adventures in the future

made from:

A handy cotton duffel bag with drawstring top - large enough for shelter building essentials, and anything else your adventure needs,

A generous, high quality woven fly sheet, with eyelets 3mx3m

A robust, rot and waterproof groundsheet to enable any-weather adventuring.

A hardwearing and beautiful mallet, hand-made by The Den Kit Co out of Shropshire Ash

A cotton bag large enough to keep tent pegs safe, plus collect other useful objects such as tinder or natural cordage

4 useful elastic ball bungees, for use as an alternative to cordage in shelter-building

Similar to Ed Stafford’s own iconic headwear, this cap in beige cotton is subtly embroidered with Ed’s own brand symbol and ready to wear. One size, with brass clip to adjust according to head circumference

An illustrated collection of top tips, advice and insights written by Ed Stafford himself, cleverly folded to keep safe or put on the wall

22m of high quality paracord, ready to be cut into lengths (and ends sealed) according to need
