Our Story so far...
Rika Activities, Connection and Engagement CIC, or Rika ACE for short, was set up in July 2023 (and started trading at the end of September 2023) by Kai Mitton and Clare Smith previously of Rika Bushcraft Ltd.
Rika Bushcraft Ltd was set up by Kai in 2020 at a small campsite in Warsop.
Clare Joined the company in May 2021 and shortly after we moved to our amazing 4/5 acre woodland site in Ravenshead.
We had our grand opening in August 2021 and haven't looked back.
Since opening we have made many changes to the site and the activities/events we offered as well as started to work with groups who were run by charities and CICs.
It was working with these groups that made us realise the direction we wanted to take and led us to the more recent decision to open Rika ACE as a not for profit company to benefit the local community and the groups we are so passionate about working with and supporting.
Our site now has an archery range with us both being GB Archery instructors. We can offer archery and crossbow sessions here.
We have an outside forge so that we can run blacksmithing sessions.
Our offerings range from Home Education sessions during the week, junior and family sessions at weekends, holiday clubs, birthday parties and other family activities to full weekend and week long courses and experiences for adults.
