Now that we’re approaching the end of the summer holidays, we’re looking forward to having you all back at our Bushcraft camps in the new school year! The skills children learn while at our camp will last them a lifetime, but between all the fun activities and outdoor experience, what do they actually bring back home with them?

New friendships

The first way kids bring Bushcraft back home with them is through the new friendships that they form. Survival and camping require a whole host of team building activities, and you’ll quickly see that your class are much closer than they ever were before.

Bushcraft is a back-to-basics camping experience, meaning that students are taken away from their phones and allowed to unplug. Without the pressures of social media dominating what they do, they’ll be able to forge stronger bonds and continue these friendships on and offline once they’re back home.

Residential Camps with The Bushcraft Company allow children to take part in activities they wouldn’t normally experience, such as shelter building and cooking their own food. We really want to help them develop a sense of independence that can bolster their confidence.

Alongside this, with filters and so many ways for kids to monitor and track their appearance and status on social media, giving them a chance to really look inwards and explore new skills is an amazing opportunity to boost their confidence without the validation of a like button.

In our back-to-basics and back-to-nature camps, kids will learn how to cook their own meals, how to set traps, how to build a shelter. These are key skills for any survivalist, but they can also be taken into their everyday life or their next camping adventure.

Alongside this, children gain a practical, hands-on knowledge of things they learn in biology, geography and other subjects, helping to better prepare them for future schooling.

Bushcraft is a great experience to give your students insight into a world outside of the classroom. If you’re interested in helping your students unplug, and re-wild their spirits then contact us to find out more.
