For Young People

Call of the Wild!

Call of the Wild provides a unique opportunity for young people aged 11 to 17 to take part in wilderness experiences at Brandon Marsh nature reserve and other locations such as Bubbenhall Wood. 

Book three days of outdoor adventure this August! Dates for 2019 will be released soon!

Call of the Wild is for 11 to 17-year-olds from Coventry, Nuneaton and Bedworth. Places are supported for young people living in these areas thanks to funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery

    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
    • being able to identify 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! 

    Watch a film we made during Call of the Wild in 2017 as participants tune into the natural world. .
