Event description

Description

At the end of a busy week, it’s always great to reconnect with nature and set up for a good weekend ahead. It’s no different for your children, but often those Friday afternoons can get fraught with tiredness and preparation. Why not send them to us for some nature connection time.

In the beautiful backdrop of the eucalypt and pine forest of Baden Powell Park, conveniently located just a few minutes from Samford Village centre, Sun and Stars Bushcraft will be running an after-school Bushclub.
The program will run every Friday during term time, from 3pm to 6pm and is open to anyone aged 4 to 17.
Throughout our time we will be pondering the question of what it takes to thrive in the bush and how can we feel more at home there. Investigating this question will include survival skills, nature connection and community building. We will explore, challenge and play, light fires, sing, dance and run, growing together in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
________________________________________

Some activities will, by their nature, be longer or shorter than others and so the specifics of each meeting will vary. This said, we always try to keep a flow and rhythm to the afternoon, always starting with a circle and ending around the campfire drinking tea/hot chocolate with some music or Earth Arts activities.

Some activities will be group activities for all ages, sometimes the age groups will be briefly segregated as the older children will have the opportunity to learn more advanced skills, and the younger ones will be undertaking a different age appropriate activity.

We keep a strict 6:1 ratio with our groups ensuring there are always enough mentors to have one to every 6 children. We are also encouraging volunteer mentors such that we’d like to run to a 4:1 ratio, but this will evolve over time and depend on the numbers that sign up.

Requirements

We request that all parents get their child to the Meeting Tree on time. This not only helps all the children transition well into the afternoon, but we are only in this space a short time before walking to base-camp, so late drop offs get particularly tricky. We actively encourage kids to get dirty so clothes you are happy for them to do this in are a must. Please also send your child with the following items;

An appropriately sized backpack containing;

• A water bottle
• Spare change of clothes
• Rain jacket/sun hat etc. as appropriate to conditions*
• We will provide a small afternoon tea of fruit, popcorn, tea/hot chocolate and marshmallows round the camp fire, but if your child needs more food, please make sure they have something extra in their pack to see them through

*we run our programs in all conditions except storms and will adjust any plans according to the weather that day. Part of being in the bush means learning to handle rain and sun alike, but we must dress appropriately for this.

Please Note – This program runs regularly during term time and we operate a ‘pay-as-you-go’ method where bookings can be made separately each week with no commitment to any further bookings. This said, if you are a regular and happy to book in for the entire term, then you can take advantage of our term discount below, however if you already receive the sibling discount, unfortunately there is no additional discount for the whole term.

We have new mentors with us this term and have opened up the spaces to a maximum of 20 to accommodate the increased interest we have received, but places are still likely to go fast so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Finally, our sibling discount will continue according to the following table which will be calculated for you at checkout by purchasing the appropriate tickets;
