NaturalBushcraft Summer Meet - Sat 19th-20th June 2010 (Cornwall, UK)

E-mail Print PDF

The next NaturalBushcraft Meet will be held at Woodland Valley in Cornwall on Sat 19th - Sun 20th June 2010.

As always we welcome all new-comers to join us in this friendly atmosphere of likeminded Bushcraft people, sharing knowledge, skills and good-times as freely as possible.

- All ages and new-comers are very welcome. Please bring appropriate clothes & footwear. If you are under 16 please bring adult/guardian.

- If you are planning on staying for any duration please bring a camping chair!

- Dogs are allowed, but have to be controlled, not loose disturbing farm-animals or people.

- Meeting in Woodland Valley Carpark for 10am on the 19th June 2010.


There are no formal courses or workshops, however impromptu workshops often break out demonstrating things like Fire by Friction, Spoon carving, Stove-Making, Cordage Making, Bannock Cooking etc. Everyone is encouraged to join in if they wish and myself and Justin bring along some communal kit for others to have a play with. These meets are a small casual affair, a great place to meet some new like-minded Bushcrafters, sharing skills & knowledge freely.


Booking money must be paid upfront at least five days before the event, payment is made through this online payment system only. Maximum number of 25 places for over-night stay, first come first served so book soon!

£10 - 1 Person for Weekend Camping

£5 - For a day-visitor

As you can tell by the small booking fee we don't run these events for profit, most of the money goes to the landowner as rent payment for our stay. A small percentage goes to communal resources; firewood, shelters & kit for classes.

    Hey this is great, and totaly what I believe in, as I teach my bushcraft skills voluntarily every week with a youth group.

    I would really like to come to this, Just wondering if anyone is driving from Exeter way, and are willing to give me a lift if I pay half the petrol?.
