Jim’s Bushcraft Parties

What better way to celebrate a birthday than being in the outdoors learning and practicing Bushcraft and survival skills with friends and family? Jim’s Bushcraft Parties has extensive experience designing and organising bespoke Bushcraft and survival themed parties for both children (Aged 6-12) and adults alike.

Locations

We have so far taken our Bushcraft party package to many areas of the Southeast including Hertfordshire, Surrey, Middlesex and the London area, particularly North and West London.

What is a Bushcraft party?

Jim’s Bushcraft Parties will provide you and your child with a truly memorable, action-packed and informative event where new skills will be learnt and enjoyed by all involved (See reviews).

A Bushcraft party can be up to 3 hours and based around a variety of different skills and activities depending on the interests of you or your little ones.

Jim's Bushcraft Parties - Bows & Arrows. My favourite of all the activities, this involves a step-by-step process on how to make a mini bamboo bow from scratch which is surprisingly powerful. Firing arrows up to 30 feet! Once completed the bows can be personalised and taken home too!

Bushcraft Skills

Jim's Bushcraft Parties - Shelter Building. Teams work together to build their own natural shelters using the environments natural resources or use modern tarps and ropes to build a den, which is hopefully waterproof!

Jim's Bushcraft Parties - Wild Foods. Discover the seasonal wild food that surrounds us and learn about the foods that our ancestors were familiar with! Although I don’t mind eating bugs for entertainment the children will never be asked or encouraged to do so.

What People Say About My Parties

It was just brilliant. Jim was fantastic, highly recommended! One of the kids came and told me that it was the best birthday party ever! Everyone absolutely loved it. My daughter told me that she had a brilliant time and was pleased with everything.

Thank you so much for arranging it.

The party was well planned, perfectly timed and packed with fun. What more could you want? Many thanks again,

The party was amazing. Jim was brilliant! The feedback from the other kids has been nothing but compliments, and the birthday girls had a great day also. Only complaint was ''not enough bugs'' ha.

I don't think any of us expected the girls would be so keen on grasshoppers and worms???!!!

Jim was absolutely amazing. He was so calm, patient, charming and clear with his instructions, and he maintained a good balance between being ''too nice / relaxed'' and being strict. The kids liked him alot.

Sophia mentioned to us many times afterwards that she really liked Jim. 🙂

Thank you very much for everything. We had a great time. This will certainly be a sweet memory which is to be cherished for a long time.

Jim delivered a great session for my son’s 11th birthday with 5 of his friends. The den building, bow and arrow making and fire building were all a huge hit.

We manged this despite a drizzly day in early March and we were given some great tips on how to provide food etc to make it as easy as possible.

The grown-ups enjoyed joining in with the bow and arrow making. I’d recommend taking some flasks of hot drinks if it’s a cold day but so long as everyone gets togged up it’s fun whatever the weather!

Jim was fantastic, the kids absolutely loved it.  Really was the best party ever. Even with over 20 kids who did get very cold Jim kept them busy, occupied and interested, he is a great teacher, enthusiastic and professional.
Thank you, Jim. I'll highly recommend you to everyone.
