Bushcraft Campout


There was a mixture of hard work and fun for the NCFE Bushcraft group as they went for an overnight campout by the River Findhorn. They had to set up camp and help with chores as well as working on their Bushcraft folders, learning plant identification, making fires and working on craft projects. There was also time to sit round the camp fire and play some games.


Well done to all the group who particpated well, worked hard and contributed to a great experience for everyone.

Our 3rd Year Bushcraft group have been working hard in all types of weather on the NCFE Bushcraft Course. They have made natural shelters, learned how to safely light fires, worked on filtering and purifying water and have learned how to identify a range of trees and plants. Great work from all the group!
