Kids' Summer Bushcraft

Date: Friday 10th July
Time: 11am-3pm
Price: Free

Join the Aberdeenshire Council Ranger and Haddo Staff for a drop-in taster day of outdoor fun and traditional bushcraft!

Choose from lots of fun, muddy, challenging outdoor activities including

-how to set camp and put up a tarpaulin shelter

-knot tying

-sharpening knives and basic whittling (recommended for 8yrs+ only)

-natural rope making from willow bark, nettles and other natural materials

-minibeast hunting or pond and puddle dipping

-fern and leaf prints

Activities are suitable for most ages (including grown-ups!) but there will be an open fire, boiling water and people using sharp knives in the activity area so we wouldn't recommend this day for younger children (we would suggest 7yrs and older). Children must be with a responsible adult at all times.

Booking not essential, places on some activities may be limited and all activities are weather dependent.For more information email haddo@visithaddo.com or call 01651 851041
