Wednesday 28th August - Surival Skills Activities

Discover the essentials of survival with activities such as shelter building, water capture, nature tracks and trails and family challenges.

    We will tailor the event to suit the needs of the individuals in the group so it is important you let us know in advance of any requirements you and your family may have.  Our experienced team will be there to guide you through activities that will be tailored to suit all ages and abilities.

    About Us

    Carymoor is an environmental charity providing inspiring education to primary schools groups, supporting adults with learning difficulties and running rural craft courses for adults.  We do all this from our nature reserve and eco buildings.

    Our aim is to encourage as many people as possible from all walks of life to enjoy the great outdoors.

      Accesibility

      Our buildings are fully accessible and most of the reserve is level.

      On-site we have 2 all-terrain wheelchairs (bookable in advance) to help those less able guests to get around the site.  

      We also have two accessible toilets (please bring your own hoist if required).

      Tickets are priced at £7.00 per person.  Under 2's are free but still require a ticket.

      Location

      Carymoor Environmental Trust
      Dimmer Lane, Castle Cary, Somerset, BA7 7NR United Kingdom

      Carymoor shares its site and main entrance with the Dimmer recycling site and Waste Transfer Station.

      Please be aware that there are often heavy vehicles moving around the site so a speed limit of 10mph is in operation.

      Please stop at the traffic lights at the main entrance, joining the back of any queuing vehicles, and wait for a green light before driving through. Bear left before the weighbridge, go over the hill past the compost  until you reach the car park on the left, just before our Education Centre.
