Spend a Weekend Learning Bushcraft Skills with your Family

This is a fun and varied family weekend spent learning about bushcraft and the woodland ecosystem. You can have a go at firelighting (including fire by friction and sparking); collect and purify water; build a leaf shelter and string up a hammock; learn about useful plants and do some wildlife tracking! We also cover an introduction to safe use of knife and saw.

 

We encourage you to spend the Friday and Saturday night camping in the woods and getting to know your fellow bushcrafters round the camp fire. It will certainly be a family experience that you will always remember!

The course is designed around parents/guardians accompanying their children.

 

The course takes place in a beautiful and diverse ancient woodland adjoining the Ashdown Forest in Sussex, or for private courses at a venue of your choice.
