The Bushcraft Company committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Background checks and an enhanced DBS will be required. The Bushcraft Company believe that all staff need to be vigilant and act on any concerns they may have regarding the welfare of the children they are working with. If any member of staff has any suspicions about the treatment of a child, or actions of an adult, they must immediately raise it, either to the The Bushcraft Company DSL team, local authority safeguarding services or the police

A Day In The Life Of

The Woods

A sunny dawn in the middle of May and we are starting our day at camp in The Woods at Cornbury Park in Oxfordshire. Cups of coffee are being passed around the freshly lit central campfire, as the team start to get ready for the day.

Breakfast is the first task of the day and the camp Field Cook will be in charge of making sure everyone is catered for - students, teachers and our own team. This might involve American pancakes with maple syrup or a full English, depending on the day and the season.
