10:00 – HQ brief
Once we have reached our Bush Craft HQ, we will settle in and have a quick brief on the days activities.
10:10 – Ice Breaker & buddy buddy system
We will first play some ice breakers to learn everyones names. Following this we talk through the ‘buddy buddy’ system. This is a great method to get the children to bond and also teaches them responsibly and trust. Each child will be partnered with another for the day, they must go everywhere together at all times, each day the childrens partners will change so by the end
of the week, they will have buddied up with everyone. We will go and check the tracking traps to see if we have captured any wild footprints! We will also then try to identify those prints.
10:45 – Introduction into bush craft part 1:
On this first session, we will focus on the basics. We will show the children a number of different shelters in forest built by our instructors and go through how/why they were built. The children will then be put into small teams and start building their own shelters, focusing mainly just on the structures. We will add more and more to our shelters throughout the week until every
child, by the end of the week is confident enough to build a structurally sound, water proof insulated shelter. We also look at the basics of fire lighting, including, fire starting with a flint & steel, how to build a fire & fire health & safety
