Wildcraft Adventure Birthday for Nathan 4/30/22

In video games like Minecraft, players have to survive in a hostile environment; build their own house, hunt for their food, search for resources and fend off wandering monsters. Sure, your child can survive in the ‘wilderness’ on the computer screen, but can they do it out in the woods?

About the event

Join us in celebrating Nathan's 7th Birthday with a Wildcraft Adventure!

Just like in their favorite video games, kids will be given a number of challenges throughout the day, and all the while be building their dens before ‘night’ falls and the monsters wake up! Players will light their own campfires, ‘mine’ for resources and use sharp knives; all activities are closely supervised by experienced Dragonfly Academy leaders. There’ll be plenty of time to get creative with play and imagination, of course. Wildcraft is a  day of video game inspired activities ideal for kids aged 6-12 years.

Location:

Mandarin Park

Meet at the picnic tables behind the playground.

Who is this for?

If your child Ages 6-12 loves playing video games like Minecraft and Fortnite, Wildcraft Adventure is the perfect way to get them off the screen and into the outdoors, all while sneakily learning about nature and outdoors skills. The game is usually played in groups of between 10 and 16 kids. Children play in teams of 4 or 5 and work together to score as many points as possible, though the emphasis is not on winning the game but on scoring points through effort, participation and being creative.

What to expect

Please be aware that Wildcraft days include several bushcraft activities including; fire-lighting, den building, toasting marshmallows and whittling. Our staff are trained and experienced at tutoring children through such skills and will cater each activity to suit the child’s age and experience as appropriate. Your child’s safety is our primary concern. 

What to bring

  • Bug Spray
  • Closed Toed shoes
  • Reusable Water Bottle
  • Pants that cover the legs (if it is not too hot)

We will also provide snacks throughout the game such as marshmallows to toast on the fire. Players will also be able to trade magic items for gluten-free cookies and oranges. 

Parent and Teenage Volunteers?
