Wildcraft Lite

About Wildcraft Lite

Getting kids offscreen and outdoors!

Back by Popular Demand... Our video game inspired outdoor activity days are coming to Chatelherault Country Park!

In computer games like Minecraft and Terraria, players have to survive in a hostile environment; build their own house, hunt for their food, search for materials and fend off wandering monsters. Sure, your child can survive in the ‘wilderness’ on the computer screen, but can they do it out in the real woods? In our unique outdoor game kids have to work together, using what they know from video games, to learn outdoor survival skills and earn points along the way.

Playing our ‘Wildcraft Lite’ game is a fantastic way to introduce your video game obsessed child to nature.

Just like in their favourite computer games, kids will be set a number of challenges throughout the day, and all the while be building their dens before ‘night’ falls and the monsters wake up. Players will light their own campfire, ‘mine’ for resources and use sharp knives; all closely supervised by experienced Forest School leaders. There’ll be plenty of time to get creative with play and imagination – of course.

This will be a HALF of video game inspired activities for kids aged 6-12 years from 1pm - 4pm
