EARTH Day Bushcraft Family Nature Camp

  • 18/04/2020 - 19/04/2020
    10:00 am - 2:00 pm

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by camping under the stars, by a campfire and re-connecting with nature and your family. Our Earth Hour Nature Camp is a chance for you to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life; camping under the stars, creating memories and learning bushcraft and bush survival skills.

Come and join us for a weekend like no other with Adam as your mentor and guide. This weekend will NOT be your ordinary camping weekend. You will walk away having experienced and learnt a range of bushcraft and bush survival skills.

The full weekend camping runs from Saturday to Sunday and includes the following workshops;

  • Knots, ropes & construction
  • Introduction to whittling
  • Bush cubby building
  • Bushwalk learning about local flora, fauna and how to track and navigate in the bush.

All meals (two lunches, dinner and breakfast included). Dinner is a hearty lentil and veggie soup, breakfast is baked beans, toast, eggs and jam and sandwiches for lunch but please bring extra snacks and food is required.

Please note, this weekend is geared at learning various bushcraft and bush skills but if you do not wish to participate in an activity then that is fine. Toilets are provided but there are no showers.

Dinner will be provided and the kids will get a chance to cook some delicious damper over the fire. On Sunday, we’ll enjoy breakfast together with our new found camping tribe, then head out for a morning bush walk learning all about the plants and wildlife and build more bush cubbies.

The weekend is led by Adam and supported by experienced facilitators.

Adam spent his entire childhood in the bush, living off-grid, climbing mountains, playing in rivers, learning to fish, track, make fires and simplify ‘being’ in nature. He now hopes to share his childhood experiences with the next generation to inspire a deep connection to nature. He has a background in Outdoor Education and enjoys camping, rock climbing, and meditation.

*Please note that spaces are strictly limited to 12 families so please book early to avoid missing out.

BYO tent and all camping equipment, plates, cups and other reusable utensils and snacks. All meals included.  Eco Explorers is committed to ensuring that our environmental impact is kept to a minimum and that we adhere to sustainable practices so we ask you to take your rubbish home and bring no plastic waste.

Kids ages: 3 – 12 years (siblings under 3 can attend for free)

What is Earth Day? 

Earth Day Network works in countries around the world to drive meaningful action for our planet across these issues:

  • Climate Action
  • Science and Education
  • People and Communities
  • Conservation and Restoration
  • Plastic and Pollution

The theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary.

Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
