OPEN FOR NEW MEMBERS AND PREVIOUS MEMBERS WHO WISH TO CONTINUE – NOW IN IT’S 11th YEAR.

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

From Baden Powell’s initial ideals and Chief Scout Bear Gryll’s TV popularity, invitation to be part of this ever popular group. The course is constantly evolving, adding in new skills, new equipment, it just gets better and better.

  • 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 as this is provided.
  • Allows you to try out something you have never done before and be more self sufficient.
  • 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
  • Opportunity for Scouts and Explorer Scouts to gain their Survival badge

Dates for 2018 are in the attached flyer.
