Group Bushcraft Courses
Learning outside the classroom engages with all ages and all abilities and promote a sense of well being. This can be brought about by such simple things such as identifying a tree, creating an ember by friction fire lighting or more commonly getting a fire going to toast marshmallows or cook a meal.
These courses are run to your requirements at a location of your choice, which could be the school grounds, a farmer’s field (provided we have permission) or at our bushcraft site.
So far this we have provided the following unique programmes.
Woodland Fun Session
Exploring in the woods to hunt down the ‘Graffalo’ for a local nursery.
Bushcraft Taster Sessions
A progressive series of 1 hour sessions to introduce the key bushcraft skills of safe tool use, fire lighting, carving and camp cooking for a local primary school.
Bushcraft Team Challenges
After a bit of instruction the teams need to collect the materials for a fire, then using a method of their choice light it, once its lit use the fire to cook a simple meal and then clear up afterwards. These courses have proven to be popular for uniformed youth organisations and for corporate team events.
Fire Lighting Sessions
A full session on how to light a fire without matches from bow drill used by our ancient ancestors right through to chemical reactions. A great way to engage young people in physics, chemistry and biology.
Bushcraft Overnight Experience
Following requests from clients we have added this exciting programme to our range of course. After some instruction, you will be expected to set up your camp and cook your own meals outdoors. A true wilderness living experience sleeping out under the stars but be warned this course will leave you longing for more.
If you would like us to provide one of these activities for you then please get in touch to discuss your requirements so that we can give you a competitive price.
