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!)

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.

What happens at a typical bushcraft birthday party for kids?

Forget ‘keep off of the grass’ and ‘stay out of the mud’! At a bushcraft birthday party, we want kids to be kids and get stuck in!

Our bushcraft birthday parties are stimulating, fun and unique. They get children into the great outdoors allowing them to learn new (or should that be old?) skills. And here’s the best bit for parents. Bushcraft birthday parties are educational. But shh, don’t tell the birthday boy or girl… they’ll be too busy having fun to notice!
