Young Pathfinders Survival Club

Young Pathfinders – Survival afterschool club!

Mondays 3.30 - 4.30pm

Miss Swallow has recently become part of a team called Young Pathfinders, based in Leicester. She is starting a brand new branch of this team in Leeds which will be called the Young Pathfinders Leeds Outpost. This is a children's adventure club which inspires children to learn and develop through survival and bushcraft based activities. Children will have the opportunity to learn everything from shelter building and building fires, to knot tying, knife skills, purifying water and much more. This is going to be an extremely exciting club!


Survival Club will run from the Bungalow and use the school grounds as a base. The children will learns things like:

  • the 4 main areas of survival
  • basic first aid
  • shelter building
  • knot tying
  • fire safety, how to build a fire, what to collect to make good kindling, how to make a stove
  • water purification – how to take unclean water, purify it and boil it to make a cup of tea
