Used as either a full programme, or as individual progressive sessions, Bushcraft is a new and exciting activity that teaches young people the wide range of bushcraft skills necessary to survive in a wilderness scenario. Young people are encouraged to think about their perception of the natural world, as well as understand which elements can be utilised in conjunction with newly acquired skills; such as learning to construct a shelter, safely lighting a campfire using natural materials, and using campfire gadgets to cook a variety of meals outdoors. By working together in teams, Bushcraft also teaches important life skills such as resilience, communication, problem solving, creativity and overcoming personal challenges.
