Bushcraft

Ranger Sessions: Bushcraft

Natural Shelter Building

A test of ingenuity and teamwork. The group is split into smaller teams (usually 5 or 6). The challenge is to build a shelter from materials they can find on the forest floor which the whole team can get into and which can survive a rain shower (provided by the Rangers at the end of the session!).
More time can be spent looking at different designs for shelters, factors in siting the shelter and survival strategies. Offered during June and July.

Time: 2 hours
Maximum group size: 16
Key stage: 2+
Cost: £64.00 (£4 per child)

Time: an additional 1 hour
