Each day comprises the following:
- 10:00 - Arrival, registration, safety talk and programme followed by splitting into age groups if required.
- 10:30 - Skill lesson. (One of either fire making, tool use, knots and lashings, shelter building or implement making.)
- 12:00 - Lunch, hot chocolate, marshmallows. Followed by nature or survival inspired games
- 13:00 - Skill revision.
- 13:30 - Supervised self lead individual or small group activities using previously learned skill.
- 15:00 - Collection.
Our ultimate ambition is for parents to collect a buzzing, excited child who has a tall tale to share about repelling Viking hoards with a bow and arrow or perhaps commando crawling through long grass and securing a jungle clearing from the sneezing dragons. Who knows? Each participant on each day should have something they have made to bring home, we do, however, promise that the big stuff can be left behind and doesn't need to be squeezed into your boot although we do understand how protective some children can be of their pet twig or favourite rock.
There is plenty of scope for children who attend multiple sessions to advance from basic to intermediate skills.
