Think you and your Dad would survive a weekend in the wild? Put your skills to the test with our Bushcraft for the Boys, father and son camp. Wild things! invites fathers and sons to unleash their inner wild man and spend a weekend of adventure with us on the idyllic Moray Coast.
From the creation of traditional hunting tools to tracking illusive wildlife, the Bushcraft for the Boys Camp is the perfect escape from fast-paced, digital lives. Led by our experienced and knowledgable Wild things! instructors, participants will have the opportunity to spend a unique and special time together.
This wild weekend is designed to build relationships, increase appreciation of our natural environments and most importantly, ensure participants have fun. Everyone will have the chance to learn how build an obligatory man cave (natural shelter) to protect you from the elements, as well as other traditional ancestral skills, such as:
- foraging for wild foods
- using traditional fire lighting techniques
- cooking natural delicacies over an open fire
- learning creative knife carving skills
Held in Culbin Forest on the stunning Moray Coast, we have fantastic access to the woodlands and shoreline. Grey and common seals, as well as red squirrels, are often visitors to the site.
Accommodation is in tipis, hammocks or tents and our bathroom facilities consist of a composting toilet and camp shower. Wild things! provide all food, necessary field equipment, tools, and outdoor clothing.
Instruction and supervision is provided by our qualified and experienced Wild things! activity leaders. Maximum group size is 12 participants. Emergency Transport (4-wheel drive vehicle) is always available.
These camps are for fathers and children aged over 8 years old.
