Coppice Clearing Camp Weekend at Big Mose Base Camp


We have a weekend of bushcraft skills, coppice clearing, night hiking and fire making coming up at Big Mose Base Camp, Duddmaston on the weekend of 10th December 2016.

Following on from a recent skills camp at Kinver and a really successful district camp where the scouts were tested on all kinds of skills, we are again teaming up with Mick Cowles who has helped us run two very challenging and fun packed camps in the grounds of the Duddmaston Estate.

Over the course of the weekend, the boys will clear a large hazel coppice, from which we'll create huge fires, we'll be cooking outdoors, using axes, knives and bill hooks, honing fire skills, incident hiking at night, cooking communal dinners, orienteering, telling ghost stories and playing wide games in the woods.

The last two have been rip roaring successes and we'd absolutely encourage all of our scouts to make sure they attend this excellent event.
