Build Your Own Bushcraft Camp
In today’s video, you’ll learn how to build a bushcraft shelter from scratch. But first, let’s talk a little bit about what bushcraft is.
At its core, bushcraft is about being one with nature. Man has always used natural resources to his advantage; however, it’s important not to take it too far. This can be a difficult line to toe, but it’s very important that we as survivalists and outdoorsmen have respect for nature and do our best to leave it at least as good as we found it.
WildernessSurvivalSkills.org defines bushcraft this way:
Bushcraft itself can be quite simply explained as the skills needed to enable you to survive, live and thrive in a wilderness environment – generally without any outside amenities, these skills can only be gained through knowledge and real life wilderness experience.
However, Bushcraft is not simply all about how to survive in the wilderness – it goes far beyond that. It is all about creating sustainability and being able to live comfortably within a natural environment, and being able to live your life by being part of our natural world using a more indigenous human approach.
Using these skills to live of the land is one of the most satisfying things you can do, both physically and mentally, the connection you get back from nature is hard to compare with anything modern life can offer – these skills take time and effort to learn, but all are learn-able, for everyone, regardless of age.
