An outdoor education adventure company are looking for fresh recruits ahead of their busy summer season. The Bushcraft Company run a number of residential camp visits for groups of schoolchildren across the UK and are looking for the next wave of outdoor enthusiasts to support the growing demand.
Concentrated on delivering an authentic experience of the great outdoors for children who may not have experienced life outside of a city, The Bushcraft Company have been active since 2010.
Over the years many young people have experienced the rite of passage to embrace the outdoor elements with their peers, camp in the woods and sleep under the stars. As well as building essential bushcraft skills through exhilarating activities, the life skills – social, emotional, and physical – gained are invaluable.
Currently, The Bushcraft Company runs camps across six locations, based in:
● Castle Howard, Yorkshire
● Boughton Woods, Northamptonshire
● Cuffley Camp, Hertfordshire
● Penshurst Place, Kent
● Badminton Woods, Gloucestershire
● Blenheim Woods, Oxfordshire
Each camp lasts for up to five days, with children aged between 7-18 years on-site for 24 hours a day. All locations are now looking to recruit the right personalities and provide the training to create the magic of Bushcraft ahead of the season. Camps commence in May, and will be running all summer, through to October.
The overnight summer camps encourage young people to leave their screens behind, build friendships and make some fantastic lifelong memories. Their days will be spent as budding explorers getting back to basics and learning how to survive in the wild this summer.
The children are well looked after throughout by camp instructors and personal chefs on hand to provide a delicious menu.
Successful applicants will receive 4-6 days’ worth of training and a choice of two different contracts: zero hours or fixed term contracts of five days a week. This decision was made to provide applicants with as much flexibility as they deserve from their working patterns.
With the ability to earn up to £680 a week as a Camp Leader, plus the opportunity to work in the great outdoors, there truly aren’t many roles like those the Bushcraft Company have on offer. The Bushcraft Company has an impeccable record as a responsible employer and in promoting and offering career progression opportunities, with many employees returning from previous years of experience to more senior roles on the team.
Ben Reynolds, Marketing Director of Active Learning Group, said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for a unique job opportunity this summer and beyond. Our Bushcraft Company camps are incredibly fun experiences for schoolchildren. We receive a stream of positive feedback from the kids – and our employees, who enjoy the challenges the job provides on a day-to-day basis.
“The experience of working in the great outdoors in the summer time cannot be matched. While these camps were created to provide children and young people the opportunity to discover the British countryside, there is much our activity leaders learn and come away with from a summer of working for the Bushcraft Company.
“When you see a child complete one of their assigned activities and their face is beaming, you smile because it’s a rewarding experience. They are so proud of their achievements, and we are too. This is why the Bushcraft Company exists – we know from our feedback and repeat business that we make a real difference to a child’s outdoor experience and personal development.”
