Rugged Kids

Why not be a Rugged Kid? You may already be. We love to see kids climbing trees wading in becks exploring the great outdoors, getting muddy and generally enjoying themselves.


Every child should get the opportunity to let their imaginations fly, go build a den, see what bugs they can find and play hide and seek, what could be better. Here at the Rugged Outdoors we look to provide all of these opportunities and more, we get down and dirty but we also teach the need to look after what we have, we talk about the environment in a way that kids can understand and take into later life, this way we may have a sustainable existence with the planet.


Why not check out our Bushcraft video's to see what kind of skills that you can practice while your out and about we use this to hone our skills and as another activity when the attention span gets to its limit.
