Only for the brave…

December 16th dawned cold and crisp – and we set about preparing for a very special birthday party – Max’s 11th birthday – (special as it was going to be mostly in the DARK!)

Our intrepid Bushcraft Boys arrived prepared for the cold and wearing this year’s most important accessory – The Head Torch…. We set off on foot to try and raise our body temperatures arriving in the woods for a zero degree start at 2pm. One thing was for sure it was only going to get colder and darker…

The boys were up for everything we threw at them – shelter building, fire lighting, spear making and even gutting and cooking pheasants in the dark!!! We drank hot chocolate, ate s’mores and feasted on mum Jo’s delicious campfire cakes before playing a totally epic and terrifying game of manhunt in the dark…Bring it on boys! You were brilliant and I think we had as much fun as you – parties in the dark ROCK.
