OPEN FOR NEW MEMBERS AND PREVIOUS MEMBERS WHO WISH TO CONTINUE TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Please note: Everyone interested must register their interest including those on the current course.

Following Baden Powell’s ideals and Bear Grylls, be part of this popular group now in it’s 10th year who wish to:

  • Participate in the practical side of woodcraft and backwoods skills, camping without a tent.
  • Work in own age groups; scouts, explorers, adults & leaders.

Parents may join in too as long as they are DBS/CRB cleared by their Group
It is fundamentally:

  • Designed for anyone from ‘Scouts (must be over 11) to Adults’ in the District.
  • Fun for all, no previous bushcraft experience required.
  • You need to have camped under canvas previously (with your own scout group).
  • Not requiring specialised equipment to take part.
  • Allows you to try out something you have never done before.

Some of the many skills you may wish to try out:

  • Make a shelter from ‘tarp’ or natural materials and sleep in it.
  • Using a Knife, Axe and Saw in the Bushcraft way.
  • All you need to know about fires and starting them without a match.
  • Identifying and collecting wild foods.
  • Preparing and cooking animals and fish.
  • Making gadgets from natural materials.
  • How to collect and make safe drinking water.
  • Using and sleeping in a hammock

Dates for 2017 are in the attached flyer.
