Young Carers – Bushcraft Activities

Young Carers enjoyed a day at Bedelands Nature Reserve for a Bushcraft activity led by Mark Hedgecock. The event was led by Jackie Cooper with the support of Burgess Hill Youth volunteers and Lions Young Leader in Service volunteers.
The group enjoyed a variety of activities all without the use of technology! These included learning how to light a fire without matches and testing how different materials burn, printing using leaves, flowers, stones and cotton fabric, jewellery making, games using the natural environment, toasting marshmallows for s’mores and very competitive den building.
