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
