MISSION OVERVIEW


Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Black Hoof, Red Cloud… These were the last Great Warriors.


They could hunt and stalk prey without leaving any trace. They could build almost undetectable hides. They were expert at spearfishing and making the fastest blowguns. They could start a fire in no time, using only natural materials. They knew how to catch and preserve meat. They had healing potions for almost everything!

On this mission, you will learn to survive in the Great Plains of America, the Native way. Mentored by your Chief, you will master tipi building, bow and drill fire lighting, the great Fox Walk, tomahawk spear making and the art of the blow gun*. You’ll have to impress the Chief with your Headdress, camouflage techniques and healing potion skills. You’ll have a go at plucking and gutting a pigeon** ready for the fire and you’ll find out how to bake the most delicious corn bread in a skillet. The mission will conclude with a celebration ceremony around the fire where you’ll get to make and play your very own drums!


A DIFFERENT TAKE ON BUSHCRAFT AND SURVIVAL SKILLS WITH A MIX OF CHALLENGING AND FUN ACTIVITIES SET IN AN EXCITING CULTURAL CONTEXT


* Parents: for obvious safety reasons, the children will make replica blowguns. This will allow them to understand how they work, but will ensure they remain safe.
** Parents: this activity is optional, as we know that not all children would enjoy it. We will ask you before camp whether your child would like to take part.
