BERKSHIRE Scout Enterprises have launched a new company — Small Fires – Big Adventures which will provide life skills by working outside.
The company will organise events — open to scouts and other young people — which involve practical activities to promote confidence, self-belief and respect for nature.
Small Fires – Big Adventures will run a variety of courses including Basic Bushcraft, Nature Detective and Young People Survival Days.
These will teach skills such as fire-lighting, shelter building, survival skills and tracking.
They also hope to run children’s’ birthday parties as well as team-building and corporate days.
All instructors will be fully trained and insured.
Vince Knight, CEO of Berkshire Scout Enterprises said: “I believe that in today’s world there are still lessons we can learn from our natural surroundings, and that is what we intend to show.”
