Leaders' Bushcraft Training (5th-6th April 2014)

(Apologies for another late and out of order blogpost...I've caught up now!)

Oxford District Woodcraft Leaders came together for a weekend of training with the marvellous Nic (40-odd years of Woodcraft experience man and boy).

We made name tags, mallets, tent pegs, knives and forks out of a variety of woods - and beads, whistles and blowpipes from elder.

Lucy also made a talking stick for our group.

We learnt about making fires with a flint - safety around the fire and safe use of knives - plus shelter building and hammock rigging in the woods.

It was really good!

And - we came away with loads of Bushcraft skills to pass on to our groups. It was also perfect preparation for the District's Summer Camp which this year is on the theme of Bushcraft.
