2hr bushcraft activities
1. Bushcraft Adventure
Travel back to the Stone Age and divide into your tribes! Throughout this educational, fun and safe event, children will be introduced to the ways in which our ancestors used to hunt and gather food for themselves. They will use and evaluate a range of primitive weapons (e.g. throwing sticks, spears, spear throwers or bows) that have been simply crafted from the natural resources of the woods around them. They will use these to shoot at targets such as tree stumps and bales of hay. They will gather wild edibles too and learn exactly what’s needed food-wise to survive. The importance of a balanced diet (protein, carbohydrates and vitamins) and balanced energy use in the wilds will be introduced together with issues of safety, respect for wildlife and sustainability. As members of a tribe, children will enjoy exciting games and friendly competitions throughout.
2. Primitive Weapons, Hunters and Gatherers Experience
A fantastic introduction to bushcraft! Learn about fire, shelter, water, wild foods, tracking and getting close to animals and how not to get lost in the Wild. Packed with games and activities throughout, this mini-adventure will also take you on a wilderness trek and introduce you to the wonders of natural resources and the environment around you. It is a great introduction to bushcraft and the countryside and a brilliant opportunity for families and friends to do something together. Kids of all ages from 5 to 95 love it! An experience you are sure to remember for a very long time!
