The educational visit has been planned in collaboration with The Bushcraft Company, who offer residential school trips with a difference, taking students into the wild and giving each and every student a real back-to-nature experience they will not forget. You can view more information about The Bushcraft Company on their website at There are plenty of photos and videos that really help to visualise what life on camp will be like.
