Youngsters enjoy some fun in the woods

Written by Tir Coed / Wednesday 07 July 2021

We were delighted to welcome a group of young people from Futureworks to a lovely day in the woods last week where they got to try their hands at some woodland skills and basic bushcraft.

The group got stuck into a mini taster session of woodland carpentry and practical skills in the outdoors, making their own mallets, building shelters and taking part in a series of woodland team challenges.

The group finished the day by toasting s’mores around the campfire - but in true Tir Coed style, they obviously had to build and light it themselves first.

We absolutely loved having the Futureworks group on site. It was a pleasure to work with young people embracing outdoor activities with such enthusiasm.

“What a great day with the year 11s today,” said Futureworks P&Q co-ordinator, Aidan George.

“It was great to see them enjoying themselves after what has been a tough 18months.

“Thank you to Tir Coed for organising a fun day that gave the learners the freedom to express themselves, laugh, build skills and most importantly enjoy.

“We are already looking forward to our next trip to the woods!”
