Saturday October 14th – Sunday October 15th 2017
An overnight bushcraft
experience where you will sleep under a tarp, cook on the campfire, produce
useful items, learn new skills and connect with the woodland. Meeting at 11am
on Saturday we will provide you with some equipment before we walk the ten
minutes into the wood to the campsite. After a quick introduction to the camp
and your packed lunch we will introduce you to the tools which you will be
using and guide you through the first activity. Once this is complete we will
set up our shelters for the night and then have the first fire making workshop.
We will need to build a fire to cook our evening meal over, and then we shall
explore the wood before settling down around the campfire for the evening.
In the morning we will cook breakfast and then be straight into the second fire workshops, as well as considering how we can source safe drinking water. There will be time available to practise any skills or finish any carving projects you have started. Once we have had lunch we will strike camp and return to civilization at about 2pm Sunday.
Cost: £75 per adult / £50 per child (under 18 years)(1 free child place with every two adults who book- second child costs just £25).
