For Young People

Call of the Wild!

Our Call of the Wild programme provides unique opportunities for children and young people to take part in wilderness experiences at the trust's flagship Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve and at other locations such as Bubbenhall Wood. 

Sign up for three days of outdoor adventure this August!

Bookings are now open for our latest Call of the Wild summer scheme: August 13-15 and August 20-22, Tuesday to Thursday, 10am-4pm. These dates are for 11 to 17-year-olds from Coventry, Nuneaton and Bedworth and cost just £20 for young people living in these areas thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery. A packed 3-day schedule will develop bushcraft, nature and survival skills.

    Swap screen time for survival skills! 

    Warwickshire Wildlife Trust's ecological, education and survival experts help participants to develop the skills needed to be self-sufficient and comfortable in a wilderness environment and sessions can include:

    • building shelters
    • cooking on an open fire
    • learning to track animals
    • mastering the art of stealth
    • ecology and identifying useful species
    • teamwork games

    Mobile phones and electronic devices can’t be used to light fires or whittle a stick and so these are not necessary!
