Bushcraft and banter

Arrival of the cowgirls

I met the group as they pulled up to our site in their minibus. And was greeted by a group of 15 cowgirls all in fancy dress. I knew instantly that we were in a for a fun session!

The group collected their things from the minibus, and made their way down to our Bushcraft Basecamp.

Birthday banter

The Bushcraft Adventure was a surprise for the three birthday girls, all celebrating 40th or 50th birthdays. And from the start, there was a lot of banter! We were happy to join in, telling the birthday girls that they had two hours to learn basic survival skills from us. And that they’d then be sleeping in their shelters overnight and a local farmer was going to deliver pigeons later for them to cook for dinner. Whilst this sounds perfect to us, the birthday girls didn’t seem too keen – much to the amusement of the rest of the group!

Cowgirls got competitive

Then we got stuck in and had a go at different fire lighting methods, and got competitive over archery. The birthday girls took on our birthday bushtucker trials – and ate their way through all of our tasty treats!

We kept the kettle on the campfire throughout, and had plenty of snacks available to fuel the cowgirls for our activities. After a quick go at throwing arrows to bring the event to a close, the group brought out three inflatable horse outfits for the birthday girls (see the photos!) Who then galloped off back to the minibus, ready for the rest of their weekend of birthday adventures!

For the whole two hours, our woodland was filled with screams and laughter – what a great group!
