Bushcraft Birthday Parties

Running Deer’s Bushcraft Birthday Parties for your child and their friends will provide a fun, unique and memorable birthday – a day to remember! They can find out how to light a fire with a simple flint and steel, hunt for hidden treasure, play woodland games or build a shelter fit for a king.

Starting with a treasure hunt around the woodland, we will then gather around to try our den building skills and light a fire without matches. There will be plenty of drinks available – squash or hot chocolate for the children and tea or coffee for adults.

If food is booked there will be hot dogs and cake before the end of the party, a camp fire Happy Birthday song and toasting of the marshmallows to finish.

Each child will receive a Running Deer goodie bag to take home including a photo of their day at Running Deer.

Whats included:

  • Two experienced staff.
  • Running Deer Birthday party invitations (downloadable for you to send out).
  • hot and cold drinks.
  • Marshmallows for toasting.
  • 2.5 hours of fun in the woods.
  • A Running Deer goody bag.

Our bushcraft Birthday parties are supervised by our qualified and experienced staff. All our staff are First Aid trained, have Enhanced DBS checks and are fully trained in Safeguarding. We require two adults to stay with the group – usually the parents of the birthday child. We are happy to host more adults if they are happy to make tea!
