Y8 boys enjoyed the adventure of a lifetime as they headed into the wild for their highly-anticipated Bushcraft trip.
Their home for the camp was the great outdoors, and during their three days of living in the forest and sleeping under canvas, the boys enjoyed connecting with nature, working together and learning new skills. They covered themselves in camouflage cream and leaves to blend into their environment for camouflage and archery sniper (with foam-tipped arrows) games; learnt to throw a tomahawk, build dens, set traps, how to whittle and SOS first aid skills; went on wilderness walks, built campfires and sang songs.
Food, as anyone with boys can vouch for, is very important – and this did not disappoint either. The highlights, cooked by the boys, included burgers and onion rings (the “best EVER”), panassed salmon (which they learnt how to fillet), pizzas – all cooked over wood fires, as well as pancakes, cookies and brownies.
On the final night, the boys entertained their hosts and teachers with a brilliant ‘Tribes Got Talent’ show.
We suspect a few boys will not want to come home today after all the fun of the past three days.
