Introduction to Bushcraft
We will discuss the key elements of Bushcraft and explain what the group of students can achieve living in the wild.
The students will learn about the basic principles of fire and the fire triangle, and be shown some of the ways we can make fire. They will then collect firewood in groups and use flint and steel to light their fires to cook their lunch on.
Cooked over open fire by the students.
Archery & Throwing arrows
The group will learn the history of ancient hunting techniques. They will then be taught various techniques and how to handle equipment safely and responsibly before competing in a mini-tournament.
Football/ Rounders/ Field Games
~ Day Two ~
Wilderness First Aid
Pioneering wooden charriots
The students will prepare & bake their own Bannock bread on our outdoor fires for a fun, delicious lunch.
Students will help cook their lunch on open fire.
The group will learn why we need shelter when we are living outside, and the types of shelter used by people from different societies, nationalities and places across the ages. Students will then build their own shelter, using natural materials from around the woodland.
~ Day Three ~
Wilderness Cookery Workshop (Traps)
We will discuss the importance of food in the survival chain, and how to successfully find food without wasting excess energy. They will then demonstrate the many different traps that can be used in the wild, before the students themselves use this knowledge to design and build their own traps from natural materials and explore different cooking techniques.
A series of fun but challenging initiative exercises and games which demand team work and communication from the group.
Leave no trace
Students will learn how to strike camp effectively, ensuring that all signs of their presence in the woodland are removed.
