This was the first real bushcraft camp to be held in the newly created bushcraft area in the woods at our very own camp site at Lurgashall, West Sussex.
The camp brought together 33 members from Portsmouth, Knaphill, Waltham Abbey, Spelthorne and Walton Districts. All the children and leaders worked really well together and we all had a great time. We were also joined for meals, in the evening, and at the final circle by members of the Woodcraft Park Farm young volunteers group including Josi, the new volunteer from IFM-SEI who will be with us for the next year.
