Family Bushcraft Day

Let the family escape from the house, leave the screens behind and have a family adventure having fun and learning stuff!

Course Description

Come and join us for a day in the woods learning 3 of the main 4 survival skills. Forget your TV, tablets, games consoles and life support systems (WiFi), forget virtual reality, come out for actual reality!

Subjects covered;

  • Shelters: natural and unnatural
  • Water: finding, filtering and preparing to make it into a brew!
  • Fire: from a spark to a flame and further. Gathering your materials, preparing, lighting and hopefully finishing with some friction fire lighting as well
  • Food, this is the one you will need to bring. However, we will finish the day with a few little outdoor cooked bits n bobs

Other skills that may be included, depending on time, are camp craft, natural cordage and natural navigation.

A fun day out for the whole family from little ones to not so little ones. Get out into an amazing learning environment. Oh, and be prepared to get a little muddy as well!

This course is suitable for children of 7 years or above, however we maybe able to accommodate younger children, drop us a line.


We went on a fantastic family bushcraft day with Red Oak Bushcrafts. It was really well paced day that the whole family (my wife & I and our 2 children aged 6 & 7) thoroughly enjoyed. The kids were never bored and stayed well engaged while we felt that we were also learning something worthwhile. A really fun way to spend some quality family time, thanks!
