Survival topic schools

Pupils celebrate surviving to the end of term!

Today I welcomed pupils from Tai Education Centre in RCT to our Bridgend Bushcraft Basecamp.

The pupils had focused on a survival topic this term in school. So to finish the topic and celebrate the end of term, pupils got to put in to practice the survival skills they’d learnt in the classroom.

My favourite fire lighting method

I think most people know from coming to parties and events that I love fire. I often sit and watch fire. It has got to be the most mesmerising thing, and possibly more so when it is a fire that you have lit.

The satisfaction that comes from lighting a fire, for me is second to none. I love it when I work with groups – kids and adults – and you take them through the process of building a fire and then letting them light it with whichever means they have chosen. The look on their faces when they know that it has taken and they have done it is amazing!
