The Ed Stafford Shelter Kit


Not all classrooms have four walls. 

How to keep tweens happy, healthy and learning throughout lockdown - without relying on screens? Our children need vitamin ’n’ like never before - exposure to nature, sunshine and dirt - to reignite their creativity, test their ingenuity and provide a boost to their immune systems and emotional resilience.

Our Shelter Kit, designed in partnership with the inspirational survivalist Ed Stafford, was designed with this age-group in mind. Using professional-grade components, this is our most versatile, robust kit yet - capable of providing shelter for an overnight sleep-out under the stars, a picnic in the sun, a sanctuary, a toolkit for learning new skills and a multitude of adventures in the future.

As parents and teachers ourselves, we want to help help combat lockdown boredom and to get children outside where possible, to benefit and learn from a connection with nature. To enable even more children to share the joy of outdoor adventure, we’re offering £10 off our amazing Ed Stafford Shelter Kit, until the end of lockdown.

The Ed Stafford Shelter Kit - the perfect lockdown adventure.
