Wildcraft Adventure | Full Day

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?

Wildcraft Adventure | Full Day

Time & Location

Oct 23, 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Tillie K. Fowler Regional Park, 7000 Roosevelt Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32244, USA

About the event

Just like in their favourite video games, kids will be set 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 axes; all activities are closely supervised by experienced Forest School leaders. There’ll be plenty of time to get creative with play and imagination, of course. Wildcraft is a full day of video game inspired activities ideal for kids aged 6-12 years.

Location:

Tillie K. Fowler Regional Park

7000 Roosevelt Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32244, USA

Follow the road about 1 mile in. We will meet at the picnic area on the right at the very end of the road. When you reach the loop, park, and walk in on the right.

Who is this for?

If your child Ages 6-12 loves playing video games like Minecraft and Fortnite, Wildcrat 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 12 and 20 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; splitting wood with a small axe, 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
  • Bagged Lunch

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

Parent and Teenage Volunteers?

If you would like to stay and help facilitate the game, please reach out to Lizzy at info@jaxdragonfly.org. We will have a maximum adult to child ratio of 1:7, and volunteers can help reduce this ratio.
