Wildcraft Adventure | Preston's Birthday!

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


Mandarin Park

14780 Mandarin Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32223

Follow the road and park in the loop near the playground. We will meet at Pavillion 1, then journey into the woods.

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 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. All snacks are gluten/dairy free, but please reach out if your child has any allergies.
