POSSIBLE PROGRAM + ACTIVITIES

WELCOME + MORNING TEA

We officially welcome our guests and acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, then we'll all enjoy a mug of freshly brewed campfire billy bushtucker tea and some healthy snacks as we get to know each other and get excited about the fun ahead!

This is also time for a quick tour of the grounds then we help you set up your camp gear.

 

 

EARTH AWARENESS + CONNECTION TALK - WITH CLINT

10am

Clint will take you through a special Earth Awareness + Connection talk that you will be able to practice during your stay and when you've left.

Being introduced to hunting and survival methods, at any age, should come with an understanding, appreciation and care for the earth and environment in which the practices take place. This deeper understanding for nature can help initiate small but positive changes for earth and ourselves.

SPEAR MAKING WORKSHOP - WITH CLINT

10:20am

 

A Spear Making Workshop for the kids; taking them through every step of creating a spear using natural materials, then they'll practice using their spears with a target. He'll also teach them how to move like a hunter stalking their prey!

Included will be all materials, safety and care conversations, and a spear to take home to use. This is an introduction to safe hunting methods and awareness - no killing of animals will take place. 

 

BUSHTUCKER GATHERING + COOKING WORKSHOP - WITH AIMEE

10:20am

Aimee will take the adults on a walk around the property to identify and gather bushfoods to then use in a hands-on cooking class making a healthy and yummy lunch for the tribe.  You'll not only learn about a variety of native plants you can grow at home but how to use them in the kitchen, as well as how to use regular ingredients to easily create nutritious and delicious meals for the whole family.

 

This is optional as parents may want to watch/attend the spear making workshop.

 

LUNCH TIME AROUND THE FIRE

12pm

 

Everyone can relax around the fire pit and enjoy a feast for lunch with coffee and billy tea available!

 

Around the fire is often where the real magic happens... meaningful conversation and connection.

 

ECO-CRAFTS WORKSHOP - WITH AIMEE

1pm

 

Gather under the shade of the tall old trees and enjoy some nature craft activities, with Aimee providing a variety of craft options for everyone to choose from. Create a beautiful piece of jewellery, a palm frond treasure pouch, leaf crowns, natural cordage, or a coil weave basket.

You'll also learn how to make traditional super-strong 'bush glue' using just 3 ingredients nature provides.

 

All materials will be provided. We'll be utilising what we can find around us and recycled items as well.

 

AFTERNOON TEA

2:30pm

 

Take a break from all the learning and enjoy afternoon tea time around the fire, showing off what's been created and refueling for the next lot of fun to come!

 

NATURE CONNECTION MEDITATION

Take a seat by the creek and let Aimee guide you through a unique meditation combining "Shin-rin Yoku" (Japanese Forest Bathing) techniques with her own ideas for a relaxing and revitalising experience.

 

This method is designed to be practiced in any full or semi-natural setting and doesn't need to take very long at all, so it's perfect for busy urban dwellers!

 

MORNING TEA + FAREWELL

If you brought a snack to keep the kids going for the drive home enjoy that around the fire and we'll officially conclude the event before the sad but inevitable farewells.
