Description

Do you want to refresh your camping skills learn new or share your skills?

Or even just to camp out with other District leaders

The District team are hoping to get as many of us all together to have a weekend learning new skills we can all pass on to our Young People.

Activities could include, it’s your choice:

Shelter building including survival shelters, how to make a hammock, handy knots Knife, Axe & Saw(how to instruct & safe handling), Carving projects ( eg: Tent peg, Spoon, Spatula & feathersticks and for the more experienced bowl mug or Bow), woodland conservation, firelighting techniques, types of fires and use of different wood, how to instruct firelighting, Camp cooking techniques and menu sharing, survival skills (water collection & purification navigation telling the time survival kits )

However

To make this a success, we would like to know, what are the things you would like to learn or understand from the weekend? and if you would like to pass on your knowledge on a subject you like to teach while on camp to other leaders, then what is that skill or knowledge?

Could we come up with a District Camp cook book and a song book. Would this be a good idea if so please bring your thinking heads and your favourite things to cook and lets see if we cant make up a few books or PDFs for the website.

We aim to do a lunch of soup and bread and an evening meal along the lines of a stew or curry and an English style breakfast on Sunday.
