Event description

Description

Introduction To Bushcraft.

Session 5 - Shelter

No previous skills required but to get the most from this session I would advise you take sessions 1 and 2 first.

A session dedicated to the creation of shelter both natural and man made.

In our sessions so fare we know the basics of arrival at camp, setting up a fire, making some basic campsite furniture and have more and more knowledge of the use of sharp tools and cordage.

Our knowledge of knots will be increased and tested in the man made shelters and hammocks.

  1. Review previous sessions and discuss where additional time is needed.
  2. Types of shelter in different settings.
  3. Construction principles and design.
  4. Lean to single or group debris shelter
  5. Solo A frame debris shelter
  6. Clean up - leave no trace
  7. Tarp as a tent. Use a 3x3 DD Tarp to create 1 or 2 man tent.
  8. Tarp shelters. Use tarp to create various shelters for hammock and floor sleeping.
  9. Next steps

Duration - 4 hours
