Holiday Activities John Muir Award


The John Muir Award is an excellent way to connect with the natural world around us. Based on four core values to discover, explore, conserve and share our wild spaces this programme is set over four days to complete the Discovery Award. We will look at the wild spaces around us and engage with them through paddling, bushcraft and exploration working together to meet the four pillars of the award.
