We are excited to be running this fun and interactive one-day workshop for teenagers which will cover what to do in an emergency in the bush, how to manage survival situations and, crucially, how to not get into an emergency situation in the first place!
It won’t be all talk though, there will be practical applications of shelter building, firelighting, finding north without a compass, time of day from the sun, water sourcing/cleaning and much more besides. This workshop is being held on Saturday November 4th, from 9am to 4pm.
The workshop is being facilitated by Andy Currey who comes with a wealth of experience in bushcraft knowledge and skills. Andy is the owner/operator of Sun and Stars Bushcraft, an entity designed to encourage people to get outside and re-connect with nature. Andy has engaged in all manner of Outdoor Recreation for the last 30 years, studying everything from sailing and kayaking, through to climbing and abseiling. His experience and natural leadership shine through in his mentoring style and he is passionate about sharing his skills and knowledge with anyone keen to learn. Last year he decided to turn his experience and passion into a qualification and achieved his Cert III in Outdoor Recreation, and is a qualified Wilderness First Responder. He now teaches Remote First Aid, Bushcraft, survival skills, Earth Arts, tool use, natural resourcing, nature connection and much more to anyone keen to start their own journey into the outdoors. His passion is to make the wild more accessible, to demonstrate that it doesn’t have to be hard, or expensive, or uncomfortable and to just try to get more and more people away from their screens and back into wondering at the nature all around them.
