Family Bushcraft Day

Do you want to get feral with your family? Think Mum, Dad and you would survive a day together in the wild? Put your skills to the test with on our Family Bushcraft Day. Wild things! invites all Mums, Dads, Daughters and Sons to unleash their inner wild child and spend a day of adventure with us on the idyllic Moray Coast.

From the creation of traditional hunting tools to tracking illusive wildlife, the Family Bushcraft Day is the perfect escape from your regular 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, relaxing in the peaceful surrounding of the glorious woodlands of the Moray Firth Coast.

The whole family will have the opportunity to learn how to build natural shelters, perhaps go on a mini-beast safari, and toast some marshmallows around an open camp fire.

Our Family Bushcraft Day is an opportunity to build relationships, increase appreciation of our natural environments, and most importantly, have fun as a family. Everyone will have the chance to learn how build their own natural shelter to protect you from the elements, as well as other traditional ancestral skills, including:

  • foraging for wild foods
  • using traditional fire lighting techniques
  • cooking natural delicacies over an open fire
  • learning creative knife carving skills

Of course, there will still be time to toast marshmallows around our open camp fire.
