About this Event

London Bushcraft is providing interactive, fun and educational sessions for children during lockdown. The sessions will be once a week for 5 weeks at 4:00pm each day. We will meet on Zoom. They will; make a compass, grow food in a jar, make survival biscuits and more.

During the sessions they will learn about:

The Stone Age - Wednesday 17th June

Learn what life was like in the Stone Age. Where people lived and how they survived without our modern day conveniences. Then watch two methods that were used to create fire in the Stone Age; friction fire lighting and flint and steel.

How to grow food in a jar and learn about seeds- Wednesday 24th June

The children will start the process of growing food in a jar today and we will look after it during the week to keep it growing. They will learn about seed germination and seed dispersal in nature.

Learn all about why water is essential for our survival - Wednesday 1st July

Learn about the strange and wonderful ways to find water in a survival situation and they will make their own survival water filter.

Learn about Ernest Shackleton’s expeditions to Antarctica- Wednesday 8th July

Learn about Ernest Shackleton’s expeditions to Antarctica and make “Sledging biscuits”. This was one of the foods that helped keep Shackleton’s team alive while stranded for two years.

Natural navigation - Wednesday 15th July

Learn about natural navigation and how to use signs in nature to find direction. The children will make their own compass.

All of the above can be done either indoors or outdoors and can be done in a flat or a house with minimal adult supervision and with equipment that is easily found. Four of the sessions have a practical element that the children will do themselves.

Each session on a Wednesday at 4pm and ends at approximately 4:40pm. Ideas will be given each session about what they could learn about between the sessions.

Children can sign up as individuals or with a group of friends. For group bookings of 6+ children, the times and dates are flexible.

Sessions suitable for ages 7+ or 5+ if accompanied by an older sibling or parent.
