Bushcraft was defined in 1906 by Horace Kephart as ‘the art of getting along well in the wilderness by utilising nature’s storehouse’. (The Book of Camping and Woodcraft)
Our introductory family Bushcraft sessions at Home Farm Glamping are not designed for survival in the wilderness but will offer a range of fun and engaging experiences from fire lighting, knife work, nettle string, shelter building, camp fire cooking, and identifying plants and trees that can be useful to us. We will together develop an understanding of how to use tools and equipment responsibly to achieve these tasks, and what nature has to offer, whilst building a love and connection to the natural world.
Our programmes always encourage making as little impact on the natural world around us as possible by teaching Leave No Trace ethics.
Dates: 19th June, 31st July and 21st August
Cost: £25 pp for a 2 hour session in the beautiful grounds of the Aldenham Estate
