Bush skills for kids
The Australian bush is both fragile and harsh. Students are encouraged to respect and protect the natural environmental, while learning how to explore and enjoy it safely. This program is an introduction to bush skills, with activities such as shelter building, finding drinking water, building safe campfires*, making damper/energy snacks and delivering simple first aid.
*Campfires are prohibited during fire season (October to April), when a total fire ban is issued and on days with a very high fire danger rating or above. An alternate activity will be provided on these days.
'The students enjoyed the challenge of building shelters, pretending to be injured and making damper.' - Year 5/6 Teacher
