MALE carers in Craven are being offered the chance to reconnect with nature and learn essential survival skills by taking part in a free bushcraft day.

Organised by Carers Resource, which has an office in Skipton, September's event is being run as part of the charity’s ‘men care too’ project. It will provide a fun day of bushcraft activities and campfire chat in a woodland and camping area on Baildon Moor.

It will be a chance for male carers to take a break from their caring responsibilities and meet other carers in a relaxing and supportive environment.

Goran Selby, project officer at Carers Resource, said: “We are delighted to be organising this exciting ‘bushcraft day’ for male carers, which will bring them closer to nature and teach them essential survival skills. It’s also an opportunity for them to chat with other male carers and enjoy a well-earned break from their caring role.”

Led by an experienced bushcraft instructor and survival safety trainer, participants will be working together as a group on activities including making a fire, building a shelter, wilderness cooking, archery and axe-throwing. It is free for male carers registered with Carers’ Resource, all equipment and refreshments will be available on the day.
