About the event
An introductory Bushcraft experience designed with families in mind. Explore the core principles of survival in a fun and informative way and spend some quality time with all the family.
This half day session includes shelter building, foraging, wild cooking and fire lighting.
The venue for the course is on a beautiful private country estate. We'll take you on a short 10 minute walk to a stunning oak woodland with views of the surrounding mountains and out to the Duddon estuary. There is a central fire lighting area covered by a large parachute so you can stay dry whatever the weather. There is also a composting toilet located in the woodland.
The session will start with an introduction to the woodland and identifying potential resources that you may use during the session.
Your instructor will give you some tips to identify a good shelter building and how to construct a basic shelter from natural materials.
You will have a go at building a fire using flint, steel and natural tinder. Adults can try out the fire bows! After making the fire you'll have the opportunity to cook damper bread or mini pizzas and also boil some water in a Ghillie kettle for making hot chocolate and brews.
You'll be shown how to safely use a knife and how to carve a whistle which you can take away with you.
A fantastic fun way to get out with the whole family and get back to basics. Absorb yourself in something different, learn new skills and just enjoy the peace and tranquilly of the woodland.
Suitable for families with children age 5+.
