Parent and Child Bushcraft 24 Hour Course




Set in a woodland on a private estate with safe access to two lakes, we will introduce you to the core skills necessary for both the enjoyment and potential survival in wilderness areas. These will include the following practical or demonstrations:

* Wilderness safety

* Protection from the elements

* Natural shelter building

* Fire lighting and management

* Water collection and purification

* Collection and preparation of wild food



This course is especially designed for you to experience the world of bushcraft with your child. We have a central parachute with a communal fire that we all gather round for meals and to relax between lessons.

We guarantee that you and your child will go away with an enthusiasm you did not know you had.

This course is for both sexes so Mothers with daughters please do come along. Show the boys what you can do!
