Posted in Outdoor Learning too, but that seems v quiet. I went on a great taster course for forest schools this week and loved the idea of being able to light a small campfire in our outdoor learning sessions (obviously in a safe, managed way). They were clear about needing a qualification to do it. Problem is, forest school costs £800, plus 7 days supply costs, plus extra days for assessments, plus £140 for outdoor first aid course, plus supply costs to do that too. I know that other organisations like scouts, guides are covered for campfires etc and am wondering if it is possible to access similar training, as the cost of Forest school is far too expensive for the school to fund at this time.
