Wild 3 - Orienteering & Leap of Faith 

 

Wednesday 28th September 

 We've mixed things up a little for this brand new event which includes a great mix of learning how to navigate using a map and compass and then facing our fears on a high ropes challenge. 

We spend the morning learning how to navigate using a map and compass and then trying our newly learnt skills searching for checkpoints on the new Rewild Orienteering course.

  • Learn about different map types and features

  • Compass usage including how to take a bearing and orientate a map using the compass

  • Pacing and estimating distance

  • Orienteering course, Small groups then go in search of hidden checkpoint flags using a map and compass and punch there control card once found.

In the afternoon we face our fears by tackling the Leap of Faith. A High ropes activity where the kids attempt to climb up a ladder then onto the tree to a platform 8m off the ground. They then take a "leap of faith" out of the tree in an attempt to catch a trapeze bar suspended in front of them.

Multiple attempts allow for a soothing gradual progression to take place and for confidence in the safety system to be developed.

Suitable for kids aged 8 - 14 years

             Wild 2 - Hunter Gatherer

Tuesday 27th September

 We practice a range of skills that were used daily by ancestral people from all over the world.

  • Spear making and throwing

  • Basic wild food foraging

  • Traditional hunting techniques, trapping and animal tracking methods

  • Set traps in an attempt to catch fish, eel's and yabbies and then release them back into the river

  • Look at bird traps, snares and a range of traditional weapons used worldwide by our ancestors

  • Nature connection and sensory awareness games

A big part of Wild 2 is our spear making activity, your child will be given a comprehensive knife safety lesson. they will then with assistance harvest, de-bark, sharpen and then fire harden their very own spear to keep (if it's ok with parents that is)

*No live traps other than catch and release fish traps are used during the day, so no harm whatsoever is done to local fauna.

Suitable for kids aged 7-14 years.
