Junior Bushcrafters

A club for children from School year 1 to 4

The children develop Bushcraft & life skills each week during term time. The skills are recorded in our Activity & Achievement record booklet and on our online system that can be viewed by parents. The groups are friendly and dynamic with lots of time to develop friendships and develop skills at what ever pace is needed. The children will learn that a knife is a tool and how to use & maintain them. Make shelters and get to sleep in them if they wish. Learn cooking skills and undertake a range of outdoor sports including axe throwing, archery and air rifles. The juniors First Aid badge the same syllabus as the adult HSE Emergency First Aid at Work Course.

Each child will earn proficiency badges showing the progress they are making. We also have fire, knife, axe and camp licenses that are awarded when the Bushcrafters that display a sensible, safe and respectful approach to these more specific skills. The licenses can be taken away if the safe standard and respect falls short of the criteria.

Please enter via the front gate of Homefield Primary School which is on Homefield Avenue.

Booking is essential as we have a limited number of spaces.

On a Friday evening we welcome children aged from reception allowing them to increase their Independence, motor skills in a safe area. The Bushcrafters in this group will be located at the Little Bushcrafters area. This allows the children to thrive in a group separate from the junior Bushcrafters and gives them space to explore with children of their own age and ability They also have time with the juniors. We MUST ask parents of under 5 years of age to stay with their child.

Samuel loves going to Bushcraft learning new skills and working towards the badges. Jonathan is patient and enthusiastic with the children and you can see how much they enjoy what they do. Bushcrafting is a unique experience which I’m so glad we found. Samuel recently had a Bushcraft joint birthday party with his friend and in his words “it was awesome”. Lovely to see him develop in confidence and come home smiling and talking about what he’s learnt. Cant recommend it enough.
