“PACK THE RIGHT SKILLS AND THE RIGHT ATTITUDE, AND YOU WON’T NEED MUCH ELSE” - BEAR GRYLLS

Learning to respect and use your knife is one of the most important skills of the true adventurer! On this two-day mission, you’ll learn all about knives – how they are made, how to use them expertly and how to look after them.

The mission will combine two great bushcraft projects: first you will get to whittle your very own camping knife and spoon out of wood. You’ll learn how to use a whittling knife skilfully, the different cutting techniques and the steps towards creating a really cool kit! Once you’ve completed your first project, you’ll then get to make a sheath out of leather for your kit, so you can carry it around safely on your belt. Do you know what a fid is? What about a groover? A rowel wheel? You better join us to find out…

Throughout the two days, as you develop your projects, your creativity will be fuelled by hot chocolate made in the Kelly kettles! In true Hive tradition, the mission will conclude with a celebration around the fire.
 

MIXING BUSHCRAFT AND MAKING SKILLS, THIS MISSION WILL FOCUS ON EMPOWERING THE CHILDREN TO LEARN AND PRACTICE HOW TO DO SOMETHING DANGEROUS SAFELY.
