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.


Just wanted to say thank you so much for such a fantastic day!! We all enjoyed every minute of it - both us adults the bigger kids and even Gracie! You were brilliant company, and a brilliant bush craft aficionado! The kids started the fires each night in our cottage with the fire steels and we all now are professional fire starters so thanks for those skills too!

Family Bushcraft Day

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!
