Running Wild

If you are looking for a family bushcraft experience then our family bushcraft days are perfect for you. We all lead such busy lives that time with our family can be precious. Spending a day in the woods around the camp fire, with no distractions is a great way for your family to spend quality time together.

Our adventures are run by experienced bushcraft instructors who provide you with the opportunity to learn how to live outdoors…plus you have fun too!


“Thank you Running Deer! Our son said it was his best birthday party ever and some of his friends said it was the best they’d ever been to. They all loved it and you guys did an awesome job. We will be back!”
