Wild Tribe

Wild Tribe has been based on the principles of Forest Schools.  It is about children and young people building self esteem and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world.

  • Natural crafts – making necklaces from elder, crowns or dreamcatchers from willow, collages from natural materials, weaving with long grasses, tree cookies, etc
  • Fire building and cooking on a campfire
  • Mud sculptures
  • Tree climbing
  • Using tools for a purpose e.g. using a knife to whittle wood to make a marshmallow stick, using a saw to cut wood to the correct size for a stick man.
