Survival Skills

I woke up to the sound of rain on the window and wondered if any folk would be coming out to Corehead this day...

and treck out they did, (with a little help), 14 hardy souls, keen to survive the mist and rain and build a shelter.




We made an A - Frame shelter out of fallen branches



Some of us had a go at different types of knots, including the famous clove hitch




Then we wove bracken, a few rushes and some docks in between.





and created a great place to hang out (survive!)


As the sun came out we emerged to have a go at lighting fires and toast marshmallows...next time a more inventive fire side snack will be had I promise!



So that's the last of the summer holiday Corehead adventure clubs...we'll be organising similar activities in the future. If you have any ideas or suggestions or would like to find out more please do get in touch at Corehead@bordersforesttrust.org or leave a comment here!
