At Chapel Gate, we offer a range of bookable campcraft and outdoor experiences.

These offer an excellent opportunity to build resilience, teamwork and a further understanding of the natural world. Environmental psychology and the studies surrounding human wellbeing and connectivity to the environment have shown us that by staying close to nature we feel more grateful and appreciative of what it has to offer (Proshansky 1976).

We can help you develop skills that are applicable to your personal and professional life.

These skills will be developed by combining campcraft techniques such as fire lighting and safety, tarps and hammocks, knots and hitches, shelter construction, adventure games, forest art, nature walks and education, and archery. It will also include how to use survival tools such as knives, saws and axes safely. 

Learn numerous ways to use natural resources wherever you may find yourself, and begin to see a world full of valuable and familiar tools that you can rely upon should you need them.

Choose your experience

Our outdoor sessions can be tailored to suit the needs of your group. We will work with you to meet your aims and objectives for the session, whether this is a children’s party or a corporate team building experience.

The outdoor communal area is also available for booking as a meeting space if you are looking for that functional space with a twist. We can provide your team with hot drinks and a short introduction to campcraft skills as an ice-breaker or team builder before or as part of your team meet.
