Friends camping in the forest together

Next on our list of #52Things to do before you’re 16 in THE ADVENTURERS HANDBOOK is to build a wild hut – using only things you find in the wild!

From the moment you pick up your first stick, you’ll want to build – and build some more. Every part of building a hut in the wild is exciting and there’s nothing better than building something from scratch!

The best part is that you can construct it with your bare hands from materials like sticks and leaves; no tools or rope are required. A leaf hut protects from the cold, wind, rain and snow. 

Contact us for hints and tips on how to build your hut, or you could even come along to one of our Day Camps to experience great outdoor activities such as this by joining our tribe as one of our Camp Xploders!
