Star Room Bushcraft
Here’s what different Star Room children had to say about their Bushcraft experience.
On our first day: The ride to bushcraft took a long time but we found a lot of ways to entertain ourselves one of them being “ are we there yet “ every five seconds. We sang songs really loudly and also played a lot of games. When we got there it was nearly time for lunch and then we learnt to make a fire and we cooked our burgers over the top of it. We got put into tribes the best one was definitely the smoky tribe and we worshiped smoky mountain. The other tribe the all stars or as the cheating tribe. We had a fire which was on all day everyday. After dinner we played everyone’s it which was the best game by far and we still play it back at school now.
Our second day: we had pancakes it was delicious. After breakfast we brushed our teeth and set up shelters ( I can’t remember if it was on the first day or the second?), which most people slept in for the next two nights I did and it was really fun👍. Most of the days were really cold 🥶 at least for me 👍. We did rehearsals for the first tribes got talent✍️ and smokey tribe won the first one. We did archery tag and and axe throwing and archery.we had pizza 🍕 for lunch. After that I don’t remember anything, because I was sick and I went to sleep😴. We had salmon for dinner which I didn’t eat much of because I was sick 🤢. And most of us slept in the shelters including me 👩🏼.
The third day: The shelters were really nice to sleep in 🛏 and really warm 🔥. For breakfast we had sausage hash brown and bread 🍞. After we practiced for tribes got talent. Smoky tribe is still the best 👌. For lunch we had vegetable 🌽 curry 🍛. After that we did more practicing for tribes got talent 😊. For dinner 🍽 I can’t remember but it was really good. After we did TGT ( tribes got talent ). All stars went first with the most confusing thing I have ever seen? Then it was smoky tribes go which was the the recreation of the residential but much funnier!!🤣🤣 smoky tribe obviously won 😃😃. Then most people went to sleep in the shelters including me again.😁.
The last day: we had to pack our things up and then clean our tent which took ages!! We had porridge 🥣 for breakfast and we could add cinnamon or golden syrup.after we took down the shelters and left no trace that we were there so it is back to it’s natural habitat. Then we collected some more 🔥 wood. I can’t really remember anything after that. We had beef 🥩 fajitas which were really good like all the other food we had 🍽 and then we got on the coach back and that was the end of the fun 🙁.
The residential was so interesting. We got to learn how to do so many things with no heating and no electricity! We learnt differences about man made trails and deer trails! We played games we cooked our own food. We slept in tents! We also learnt first aid, and the teachers set up a fake plane crash too test our skills and the people who worked there were really nice! My favourite part was playing archery tag on the second day! We stayed there for four days. We got split into two tribes and we both competed in tribes got talent!
On the first day we made burgers on a fire we made, using flint and steel, and they were great. We were split into tribes, that we named the Smokey tribe and the All Star Tribe, I was on the All stars, and we did an act to show how we formed, the Smokey’s were from a volcano, and they killed the Gorilla god,and got smoke powers for sacrificing the body of the gorilla god. The All Stars did a rap, then we made shelters, and went to the fields, where we played everybody’s it. I can not remember, what we had for dinner 😔
After a short, Cold night 🥶 in the tents, we got up and had Delicious 😋 Pancakes with syrup, after we brushed our teeth, we rehearsed for tribes got talent, our one starring Jerry the worm 🐛, after 🍕 pizza for lunch, were I had mushrooms and pepperoni, before that we did archery 🏹, and tomahawk throwing, them archery tag were I got George and Clare out 👍. For dinner we had some fresh salmon. 🐟
We slept in the shelter which was quite warm 🔥 , for breakfast we had porridge 🤢 , and I accidentally put to much cinnamon , so I had to get a new bowl. We had practice for tribes got talent, and then had vegetable 🌽 🌶 🥔 curry 🍛, which I didn’t like, so I just got plain rice 🍚, we did more practice for tribes got talent, and soon it was dinner. We had …? For dinner. I forgot.
Then it was time for tribes got talent ……………….. The Smokey 💨 tribe went last, and had a 😆 hilarious recreation of the residential, including Edgar pretending to be Yan (Iron) Man (All Star leader) telling the true story of Iron Man pretending to be a deer 🦌, with a twist, and an angry SatNav
