What to Expect
Bushcraft at A Day in the Country can be tailored into a full or half day. Guests are split into camps and each camp is required to build a shelter, light a fire and cook a meal in order to earn as many points as possible in the given time. For instance:
- Shelter Building: Using only natural materials you will build a shelter to use as your base for the day. A brief instructional introduction will take place before you start.
- Firelighting: Guests are instructed in preparing and lighting a fire using traditional methods
- Food preparation & Campfire cooking: Guests are shown how to mix their own bannock bread mix and cook it on their own open fire.
- Bush Tucker trial (by request only): We can provide “I’m a Celebrity” style bush tucker trials by request where guests will be given various edible bugs to eat. Only for the brave!
Teams will be awarded points on the methods used, the success/effectiveness of the methods, presentation. The team scoring the highest number of points by the close of the activity will be deemed the winners! This is a fun and challenging activity which can be biased towards serious team building or just fun!
