Outdoor activities for children and adults.
Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Forest School, birthday parties, team building, plant walks, bushcraft ie how to survive in the wilderness. Come and learn all of that with us.


My name is Christopher Pryke.

After spending 20 years in the city, I decided to turn my life around and go back to my first love : outdoor activities. I quickly got the “Forest School Level 3” and the “Level 4 Certificate in Bushcraft Leadership” which are the highest qualifications in those fields. I went on to obtain the “Countryside Leaders Award, Hill and Moorland Leaders” and finally last year, the “Mountain Leader Qualification”.

I am one of the few who have all the necessary qualifications to take anyone safely in the outdoors of our beautiful country. Therefore, I can definitely say that I am capable of allowing you to safely enjoy the Surrey Hills and beyond.
Whatever you want to discover or whatever outdoor activities you have in mind, I can cater for them no doubt : bushcraft, plant walks, spoon carving, forest school, Duke of Edinburgh’s training, team building in the Surrey Hills or the mountains, birthday parties, hen parties, stag parties, etc….

Last but not least, I offer edge laying craftsmanship.

Now being part of the Surrey Hills Association will allow my team and I, to show you the beauty and some of the history of countryside we live in.
