Review: Primal Bushcraft Survival Day
Activity: Primal Bushcraft Survival Day
Date: June 2016
The Primal Bushcraft Survival Day was a very good experience. The Primal team helped teach skills that are essential if you love the outdoors and are very self-dependent. These skills included, making fire, building shelter and also how to cook outside. The Primal bushcraft survival team also educated the audience on the importance of ow long your body can last without food and water but also the safety of using some tools such as knives.
The Primal bushcraft survival team run day courses and multiple day courses in a few different locations throughout Scotland. The day course I attended was in Dalkeith, on the outskirts of Edinburgh. It was really easy to find and you can drive and park in the park where the course takes place. The team will then collect you and take you to the bushcraft site.
I’m not sure of the cost as the day course was a gift for Father’s Day, however I would really recommend doing at least a day course as it was very interesting and you learn skills you may need to use.
The great thing about the course was it was for all size and ages however to a reasonable ages due to using sharp knives. There were kids as young as 6/7 years. I think this is fantastic because the primal bushcraft team are teaching young kids survival skills which they may need to use in the future.
My favourite part
The best and most interesting skill I learnt was all the different ways on how to create fire. The most appealing was if your touch steel wool with a battery is creates sparks which you could then use on kindle to make fire. This method was very impressive.
My least favourite part
The only thing that wasn’t pleasant was getting a bit wet due to the weather but that’s nothing to do with the Primal bushcraft survival team because the day course was fantastic.
