Leader Training, welcoming our young leaders

We've been lucky enough in Bristol to be able to access some funding from the Alpkit foundation, for bushcraft training for our leaders. It's always a popular activity at camps and groups, so it's great to be able to get some more leaders ready to run things.

It's great that our young leader have been able to take part in the training too, many of them have enjoyed these activities as younger children and are keen to learn more about running them safely.

The first of our training sessions was in early September, over a rather damp weekend, giving us all a certain motivation to make sure our shelters really were waterproof!

Fire lighting was quite challenging with the wet weather, but everyone boiled their water in the end.
and of course cooking over the fire
