Bushcraft increases the connection between children and nature; nurturing greater respect for the natural world upon which we all depend. Being outdoors and connected to nature increases children’s levels of physical activity, it has also been shown to increase children’s personal and social skills.
Experience of the outdoors and wild adventure space has the potential to confer a wide range of benefits on young people… Development of a positive self-image, confidence in one’s abilities and experience of dealing with uncertainty can be important in helping young people face the wider world and develop enhanced social skills.”(Ward Thompson et al, 2006)
