Bushcrafts Survival Day

Overview

Explore the forest in loads of new ways in the capable hands of bushcraft expert and naturalist Bruce Ferguson  from Wild North Discovery. From cooking to painting to tracking and shelter building there's something for both young and old. You can also book your own personal activity tailored to your requirements on a day and time that suits you (including childrens' parties) Call 01388 529154  or visit www.natureholiday.co.uk for further details.

For all events, please bring waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear. You’ll learn how to build an emergency, one-person, temporary shelter using the natural materials you find around you. You’ll learn a range of fire lighting techniques and find out how to cook on a camp fire, including making supports and hangers to hold cooking pots. Foraging for wild food will be introduced. Ground water is rarely safe to drink in Britain; we’ll look at some ways of preparing water to make it safe to drink. Activity leaders are qualified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning to teach bushcrafts.
