BASC to School

What is BASC to School?

Every year, BASC provides tens of thousands of children with the opportunity to learn about the countryside, land management and the importance of shooting to rural life and conservation through a range of educational events across the country.

We work in partnership with schools, colleges, charities and other learning providers, as well as farmers, agricultural societies, land managers, moorland groups and emergency services to help young people develop an affinity with our countryside and those who manage it.

Here you will find all our latest news and updates on our work to help children and young people from all over the UK connect with shooting and rural life.

If you have an event you’d like to tell us about, get in touch by emailing us here or use #BASCtoSchool on social media.

The New Forest Show was all about education

We were delighted once again to be back at the New Forest Show after a three-year break.

The show attracted over 80,000 visitors with everything from the Atkinson Action Horses, Pony Club Mounted Games and the fantastic grand parade of livestock.

The focus of the show was very much on “interactive educational activities” the the whole family could get involved and the BASC stand certainly delivered.

Our #BacktoSchool educational zone, which included a venison jigsaw and ‘What’s in the box’, proved very popular, while our shooting simulator delivered over 300 introductions to shooting over the three days.

The Langstone and District Wildfowlers and Dorset Wildfowlers, who are celebrating their 70th anniversary this year, were also on hand to discuss all things wildfowling.

Junior Macnab well and truly bagged at Scone

Run by BASC and the Scottish Youth and the Countryside Education Trust, the event saw more than 100 young people take part during the Scottish Game Fair this weekend.
