This all started with three very good friends that had a one or two common interests. The first and probably the most importantly, all three friends love the outdoors. I mean, they love everything about being outdoors, the freedom, the nature, the fresh-air and the opportunity to practice some of the skills and knowledge that they have gained over the years in their various different roles and experiences in life.
Secondly, these three friends loved 'scouting'. Every week, they still run a Scout Troop based in North Leigh in Witney, West Oxfordshire and enjoy delivering a fun, challenging, dynamic and outdoor programme to 38 young people who share their passion for scouting and everything it stands for.
With Fat Squirrel Outdoor Co, three friends saw an opportunity to offer their skill sets and passion for being outdoors not just to their scouts and friends. They thought, lets make their passion for everything outdoors, whether bushcraft skills, bespoke celebrations in natural woodland settings or woodland learning a reality.
From their private woodland base in North Leigh, West Oxfordshire, the dream began. With their roots still firmly in scouting and everything that scouting stands for in respect, honour, loyalty and learning, Fat Squirrel Outdoor Co. Ltd welcome any enquiry into any bespoke event that you would like to consider us for.
Everything begins and ends in the outdoors. Based in our private woodland, we like to offer our customers a bespoke experience to meet their specific requirements and needs. Our friendly approach and attention to detail will ensure that whether yo are just looking to learn some new skills, practice some existing skills, celebrate with family or friends whatever your age, plan an educational event with a school or college, have a family traditional camping experience in our unique woodland location or a corporate team building experience; we can assure you it won't be a drama for us.
We can just tell that you are aching to get in touch...!
