Survival Skills Barnes, London Full Day Team Building Bushcraft
Get ready to put your teamwork to the ultimate test by learning how to master some of the trickiest survival skills around. This challenging full day team building experience gets under way with a short introduction to the art of bushcraft, followed by a woodland treasure hunt with a twist. The treasure hunt involves foraging for clues, and after learning about a number of different plants and flowers you'll have to find them all. After a quick break for refreshments it's onto the second activity of the day which is collecting wood for the fire, and building and lighting it in time for lunch. With the fire blazing it's time for some campfire cooking and on the menu will be a selection of wood pigeon, fresh fish, baked potatoes, rustic bread, nettle soup and chocolate bananas. Once lunch has settled you'll learn some basic knife skills and try your hand at carving, which will come in particularly handy for the last challenge of the day. The water challenge is the final task of the day and is designed to test everything you've learnt, as you work as a team to source and purify water.
These activities are a guide and are flexible. Choose from additional activities such as foraging, navigation, trapping and building an outdoor sauna.Important information: Price includes lunch (options include fish, wood pigeon, wild greens soup, baked potatoes, rustic bread to have with wild pesto and jams, chocolate bananas). Tea, coffee, herbal tea, foraged cordials such as elderflower and lemon balm will be provided throughout the day.
