We provide outdoor adventures for children aged 7-18 years old from May to October. Arriving at one of our safari-style tented camps, students become fully immersed in the wilderness; sleeping under the stars, and cooking over open fires. Whether they are learning first-aid techniques, building shelters or tackling an SOS scenario, our outdoor adventures are as real as you can get.


Food is an integral part of the Bushcraft experience and our Field Kitchens are at the heart of our camps. Meals include American style pancakes, cooked breakfasts, kebabs or a campfire roast. We will also supply multiple snacks throughout the day such as flapjacks, brownies and fruit.

As our on-camp Field Chef, you will be responsible for catering for students, teachers and your team, cooking delicious meals working to the simple and easy-to-follow recipes provided. The students can get involved during our wilderness cookery sessions, including making their own burgers or wood-fired pizzas!

An important part of the role is ensuring that the storage, preparation and serving of all food is well monitored, maintained and controlled. You will receive full Food Hygiene Level 2 training to support this.

Our food gets rave reviews so you’ll need plenty of enthusiasm, energy and passion to maintain our high standards and ensure your tribe leaves camp with positive memories that will last them a lifetime.
