We are completely immersed in nature here on our peninsula in Studland on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, watching our heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for us. We have designed our foraging and wild food adventures to get you close to nature and to let us guide you through what makes this area of Dorset so special and unique.

Great fun foraging, building camp, firefighting in the wild and lots more! Know your yarrow from your plantain and much more! Thanks Kyle! We had a great time . Studland is a beautiful place

My wife and I absolutely loved the day we spent with Fore adventures. Dan was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we particularly enjoyed the foraging part of the day with the razor clams being a particular highlight.
Date of experience: July 2019
Fantastic day out for my family at the Halloween bushcraft. Was really well organised and we came away with a few things that we had made. Ollie was a fantastic instructor and I can’t thank Jade & Dan enough for arranging this for us.

A day in (Fore / Adventures) world is enough to assure anyone that adventure is out there.
Embrace the seasons with us on our special seasonal family bushcraft sessions on weekends and midweek during half term and school holidays in Dorset (min age 4+). In keeping with tradition (and to keep the grown ups happy!) during these fun sessions there will be themed activities such as wooden egg hunt crafts at Easter and Halloween spooky stories and broom stick making during Halloween as well as all the usual bushcraft activities. Head to the events page to see what’s coming up.
Connecting people to nature is our passion and our team love nothing better than helping families learn new outdoor skills to enjoy their time outside together more. We have some super bushcraft buffs on our team who love to share their knowledge and outdoor expertise with you. Gather your tribe and join us in the woods to learn all sorts of bushcraft skills.
Depending on the seasons and conditions on the day your session will involve several short activities so you will learn skills that you can take away to develop and build on together outdoors. Our family friendly activities include shelter building, tool use and camp crafts, water purification and fire lighting – using different techniques like flint and steel and cooking tasty treats like popcorn or smores or trying your hand at charcoal making.
All of our Bushcraft sessions run from our Hutquarters in Studland
Please arrive at our base in the car park 10 minutes before your adventure begins to ensure a savvy start as unfortunately we can’t hold the session if you are late
On arriving at our base in Studland you will be given a short introduction to the day before being immersed in the great outdoors.
Bring clothes suitable for the seasons and the weather on the day. That means full waterproofs, sturdy covered footwear – walking/welly boots. Wear some old clothes due to brambles and fire lighting. Just remember that we will be outside no matter the weather!
