Air Rifle and Pistol Club at Peter Ashley Activity Centres Portsmouth
Bush Craft at Fort Purbrook is used as either a full programme, or as individual progressive sessions, Bushcraft is a new and exciting activity here at Fort Purbrook that teaches young people the wide range of bush craft skills necessary to survive in a wilderness scenario. Young people get to understand which elements can be utilised in conjunction with newly acquired skills; such as learning to construct a shelter, safely lighting a campfire using natural materials, and using campfire gadgets to cook a variety of meals outdoors. By working together in teams, Bushcraft also teaches important life skills such as resilience, communication, problem solving, creativity and overcoming personal challenges – all key skills they’ll learn to develop as they work together and make use of each other’s strengths.

Bush Craft at Fort Purbrook is fully accessible and suitable for participants with a range of disabilities. This is the perfect activity for parties, school groups, work groups and more. If you are a school looking for a different way of bringing your subject alive, we can tailor the sessions to meet your lesson and curriculum objectives. Our sessions allow for cross curricular opportunities linking with Maths, PE, English, history, science and Geography!
