Build a shelter, light a fire, cook a meal, sleep out over night in the woods and cook your breakfast on the fire in the morning. Your own family bushcraft wild camp experience

You'll learn how build a shelter to sleep out overnight in your own bushcraft wild camp. For families of four or less you can build and wild camp in debris shelters; larger families will use tarpaulins or a mix of the two. You'll then practice the art of firelighting and set it up for cooking your evening meal over your fire. You'll also learn some important things about setting up a wild camp.

Sitting round the fire in the evening you can have a go at a few different bushcraft skills such as string making from nettles. Wake up in your wild camp to the sounds of nature and cook your breakfast on the camp fire.
