Been soooo busy,

We are still seeking assistance again on the 06th November 2022 @ 11am until about 3pm.

We require some assitance continuing with making another base camp. This will be a space for teaching Bushcraft and lots of infrastructure still needs sorting.

If you can help in any way, please comment or PM me. No skills required!

I’m thinking campfire egg banjos and coffee at 1pm…

Jack & Jake for the boys

We have just completed a trial Bushcraft Session for families with children who are on the Autistic Spectrum.

This is something we hope to continue to do and have as a regular group.

I was very pleased that although some of the children were apprehensive at first, all took part in something and their smiles said more than words ever could.

Everyone left with a momento to put on their school bag.

Our Lead Instructor has some limited experience working with children and adults on the autistic spectrum through his work with the Military, Community Groups and Family and Friends.

We are hoping to to make our sessions more accessible to all.

We are trialling some autism friendly bushcraft events and have asked family and friends to attend the first sessions to ensure they are fit for purpose.

Once trialled and tested, we hope to make them a regular event, if there is enough interest and demand for them.

I love that idea , more places should do as you are going to do rather than exclude due to being “ different” you were amazing with my two boys both having special needs and they have not forgotten you.

We are excited too 😊

I'd definitely be interested for my sons!

Our first ‘Reset Night’ in the woods has received 9 out of 10 for the overall experience. This is really great news!

We have two more trial sessions and after that we will have it nailed down to ensuring you have the best experience possible!

Here are some photos from a family who travelled from Reading to trial the ‘Reset Night’ recently.

Neil, thanks again - we had such an adventure. You really made it great. Something to tick off the bucket list!

Great experience - those youngsters won’t forget it 🙂

My kids would love this!

Fantastic idea

Extremely happy to announce that Bunker Bushcraft will soon have two camp site locations. Not only will this help with keeping each woodland site sustainable, but it will also make life a little easier to enable maybe some larger bookings. The new woodland is 5 acres and has an old pump station that we will convert to enable warm and wet proof sleep overs.

We will be seeking assistance rebuilding our long drop toilet that we had to remove from the site in Zeals after the vandalism.

If you can spare some time on Sunday 05th June, please get in touch. Campfire coffee and lots of burgers to anyone who can help.

Kind regards,

Neil

Great stuff guys

Fantastic to see the Wincanton Cubs in our woodland tonight. We looked for animal tracks on the short walk into the woodland. Everyone then started a fire and roasted some marshmallows on the fire pit.

The Scout Hut in Wincanton really is fantastic, but getting outdoors is extremely important for a Child’s development.

Who fancies taking on the 24hr Military Ration Pack Challenge?

Have you ever wondered how the Military are fed when on exercise and sleeping out overnight?

24 Hour Ration Packs, British Army styled rat packs, contain 3 ready-to-eat main meals, dessert and snacks for a total of 4000 calories to fully sustain one active person for 24 hours.

Spend a full 24hrs in the woods, with one 24hr military ration pack per person.

It was lovely! I made the grown up version and substituted gin for vodka and it worked really well.

We did the honey during lockdown. It was great. This sounds nice and although lots of people said about the insects losing out I ensure I have a floral garden, fruit trees etc.

2. To reduce water volume…less to boil.

1. To stop the pan moving…

I think takes up space so less water and therefore heats quicker, additionally hot stones for keeping ppl warm

To fill the empty space to stop the eggs moving about when it bubbles

To make stone soup of course! 🤣
