Weave your own story in the woods this summer and make new friends.

Weavers_and_warriors_curve

Join us as we weave our own story in the woods this summer. Participants will be introduced to the ancient skills of weaving and tool making. They will then have an opportunity to work on a project designed by themselves. We will make fire by friction using a bow drill, forage plants for food and medicines and more.

There will be time to learn to use tools and create greenwood projects. Though is a skill based camp there will be time to play, explore and have fun as we play some of our favourite nature games.
