Bush craft sessions to teach Vale children survival
Published 5 September 2011
Vale children can follow in the footsteps of Ray Mears at
two bush craft taster sessions taking place at Porthkerry Country
Park on Sunday 25 September.
Vale of Glamorgan Council park rangers will teach
youngsters basic woodland survival skills including shelter
building, fire lighting and foraging for food.
The cost is £3 per child and two slots are available. The
10.30am – 12pm slot is suitable for 7-10 year olds and 1.30pm – 3pm
is suitable for 11-14 year olds.
Mel Stewart, ranger at Porthkerry Country Park, said:
"This event will teach children some basic bush craft skills which
may well come in useful later in life. Thanks to the high profile
of intrepid explores such as Ray Mears and Bear Grylls, we often
get asked questions about wilderness survival techniques. It is
particularly useful to know which woodland foods are edible as,
even in the UK, we have a number of poisonous plants and
Both slots are expected to sell out so booking is
essential. For more information or to reserve a space, please call
