Last weekend Butser played host to our first ever Family Warrior Camp; a weekend of survival activities, teambuilding challenges and fun for the whole family led by the brilliant Keith Page MBE.
Following the success of our Warrior Camps ( summer holiday clubs for 8 – 14 year olds) we had lots of requests for a Warrior Camp not just for kids…that the whole family could join in with!
The Family Warrior Weekend was open to all ages and was designed to ensure families could bond over shared time as a family whilst also learning ancient survival skills such as fire lighting, cooking over a fire, shelter and raft building.
The weekend started on a gloriously hot Friday evening with an exploration of the farm, shelter building, fire lighting and team games. After sleeping out in their own hand-built shelters the rest of the weekend continued with a huge range of activities from raft building and assault courses, treasure hunts and stories round the campfire!
The kids ranged in age from 3 to 15 but everyone got completely stuck in with all the activities and worked brilliantly together as a group.
We definitely hope to run more family warrior camps in the future so watch this space!
Thank you to everyone who joined us! Please see a selection of pictures from the weekend below…
