- Kilbroney Park, Rostrevor
As an added extra to our 1.5 hour long kids birthday parties, in this extended 2.5 hour survival session your young adventurers learn how to prepare certain items of food fresh in the forest! Although we still think our 1.5 hour survival party is still awesome, on this longer one you will learn how to gut and prepare fresh fish for cooking on the fire, as well as how to prepare fresh Irish soda bread in nature - and then of course you get to eat everything you cook! At Geology Rocks Adventure, we absolutely love bushcraft! So much so that we've designed a full activity based all around surviving in the woods! The scenario involves a Special Forces unit (your young party goers) who's plane has crashed behind enemy lines. They have to survive the session time evading the enemy soldiers (our instructors) until their back up comes to rescue them - thats the parents at the end of the session! We start the activity by teaching your little special forces cadets all the essential survival techniques needed to survive in the great outdoors, with only the items that happen to be lying around to support them. After a spending time showing them how to survive, we get stuck into our Special Forces Survival Scenario! The session involves: - Building a shelter to protect you against the elements - Sourcing food that may be scattered around the area - Finding ways to create some heat (supervised of course) - Cooking their food on the campfire! - Evading the enemy soldier who will issue punishments if caught (10 star jumps or press ups every time we catch them standing up while we patrol!) This session is absolutely great craic, and although it's usually for kids aged 8 and upwards, we regularly run this activity for adults too - with some additional challenges added for the big kids! What to bring: Lots of light layers to be removed or added as necessary Waterproof jacket Hat and gloves Good thick soled shoes SPARE CLOTHES in a rucksack Any medication needed PLEASE NOTE: All these items may get very dirty so please don't bring new kit!
