Bushcraft
Wednesday (P.M.)

Bushcraft - Wednesday's 1pm till 3.30pm

Bushcraft skills are generally overlooked by many, and with it being almost certain you’ll find yourself stranded at least once in your life, these skills are vital to learn. 

This subject encompasses all aspects of outdoor activity associated with survival and is an incredible way for groups of children to bond outside in nature as a team.

 

Here at Roots, we are focused on passing the skills our tutors have acquired to the next generation. We have skilled tutors not with just years’ experience in this field, but with lifetimes of survival knowledge. Our tutors within this field are regularly off-grid, if not living their lives out in the wilderness and at one with nature.

 

These sessions will focus on the following aspects;

  • Construction of shelter

  • Building Outdoor ovens

  • Building underground Fridges

  • Flint and Steel fire lighting

  • Mushroom Identification

  • Different types of fire

  • Outdoor Cooking

  • Whittling woods

  • Smoke signals

  • Filtering Water

  • Catapults

  • Archery

  • Foraging

  • Camping

  • Many other outdoor Skills

 

We aim to keep our sessions as close to nature as possible by replicating many age-old traditions from times past. With this in mind, we will also be crafting tools to use specifically for this subject.

 

Bushcraft is a perfect subject choice for those that enjoy being out on the land. If you are interested in exploring the skills that our ancestors would have used on a near daily basis this is without a doubt the one for you!

What you need to know...

We understand that all children have varied needs, regardless of their age or background. Some may thrive off the independence they gain from coming to Roots, however some may need a little extra reassurance and support from a familiar face. For this reason, we allow you to make the decision whether you would like to drop your children off for their session, or whether you would like to stay on site with them. As we are a working farm, there are rules of which you will need to agree and adhere to if you chose to stay on site. These can be read in full detail within our waiver, of which will you receive upon booking.

 

This session runs from 1 pm until 3.30 pm with a short break midway through.

 

Please ensure that your child is dressed suitably for the session and prepared whatever the weather. We recommend old clothes that you don't mind getting mucky, sturdy shoes or boots and waterproofs. Please also bring a water bottle.

 

A waiver MUST be completed and signed before the child can attend their first session. This will be emailed to you shortly after booking, please contact us as soon as possible if you do not receive it.
