Traditional Camp Furnishings Weekend

This courses is about learning those skills need to establish a fully equipped pioneers camp that will function for all the needs of a group operating in remote country. 

Following an introduction, the afternoon will be spent focusing on the construction of a earth cob oven.  Customers will have the opportunity to utilise a pre-existing oven in our woodland as their own hard work dries and seasons should they wish to cook in during the course. There will also be the opportunity to learn how to utilise a range of camp cook wear during the evening. 

Having learned how to fulfil the all important task of feeding a group we will begin the Saturday by looking at a broad range of beds and benches that transform a woodland clearing into home.  For people travelling light on the trail, it was an important skill to be able to make a comfortable bed for the night and place to sit whilst cooking. Customers will learn both simple and effective methods of getting up off the ground through to more sophisticated methods of ensuring a goods night sleep at a fixed location. 

Following lunch we will focus on establishing a fully functioning frontiers camp kitchen that will serve all your needs; looking at refrigeration, storage as well as washing facilities. The late afternoon and early evening will be spent making sure we have suitable lighting for the coming night as we focus on the production of reflector candle holder, candle lanterns and a whole host of alternatives to illumination available to us when out in the woods. 

The Sunday morning, we will conclude the course focus on a broad range of pot hangers, cooking aids and utensils both on the trail and base camp which customers will have the opportunity to take away, along with all their other handicrafts, at the end of the course. You will leave this course with all the knowledge needed for setting all those future camps for the utmost luxury and comfort.

Remember that anyone can rough it in the woods!
