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!

25 reasons archery is good for kids

Archery is good for kids. It requires focus, concentration, dealing with pressure, learning how to fail and much more.

Archery is a fun and accessible sport for all ages and abilities. We run archery activities for children’s birthday parties. But it’s also a great activity for schools as part of an outdoor learning session or fun school trip. It’s great for practising mental arithmetic, team work and more. We get to see these benefits first-hand, ‘in action’ when delivering archery sessions for kids.

And we love the infographic (below) by Target Crazy which gives 25 reasons why archery is good for kids.

What happens at a typical teen bushcraft birthday party?

Our two hour bushcraft events for teens go a few steps further than our parties for younger kids, so you to explore bushcraft more.

See if you can beat your ancestors by trying to light a fire old-style… without matches! From flint and steels to ancient tools such as charcloths and crampballs, your challenge is to create a flaming tinder bundle – something your parents definitely won’t let you try at home. If you can master this, we’ll even let you loose with the bow drill method (aka rubbing two sticks together!)

Kit list for taking part in a bushcraft adventure

We’ve put together a handy kit list of things you’ll need for your bushcraft adventure.

We suggest checking the weather forecast before your event. We also recommend bringing extra kit as it can be hard to predict the Great British weather! Keep reading for kit list ideas of things you’ll need for your bushcraft adventure.
