Build it and they will come…

Pioneering is the art of using ropes and wooden spars joined by lashings and knots to create structures such as water sluices and larger structures such as bridges and towers.

Our pioneering sessions are used to teach practical skills, teamwork and problem solving and challenge participants with complex construction and engineering projects that allow them to overcome challenges such as crossing a ravine, supplying water to their camp or building a trebuchet to fend off invading instructors
