Pioneering is the art of using ropes and wooden spars joined by lashings and knots to create a structure. Pioneering can be used for constructing small items such as camp gadgets up to larger structures such as bridges and towers.Squirrel Wood has a large store of natural pioneering poles and rope which is available for groups to hire. Additionally we have a selection of other pioneering supplies including block and tackles.

This activity is to be supervised by your own leadership team.
