Axe and Paddle Bushcraft courses

Enjoy one-to-one or group Axe and Paddle Bushcraft courses and workshops available for one day or the whole weekend at Pop-Up by the River campsite in Steyning.

Axe and Paddle Bushcraft have now started Kid’s Bushcraft Hazel Bow and Arrow making courses on the river campsite for the affordable cost of £10.00 per child.

Generally, there are Bushcraft courses that will suit everybody’s ability and teacher Steve is avid about wilderness Bushcraft and is experienced at teaching people from the age of five years old upwards having taught many festival goers and individuals on various campsites throughout Sussex.

Axe and Paddle Bushcraft provide family entertainment with educational and fun opportunities to take away new skills from your stay at Pop-Up by the River campsite at New Wharf Farm, Horsebridge Common. Experienced and friendly teacher Steve is happy to run an Axe and Paddle Bushcraft course or workshop from your campsite including axe throwing contest (16+), bow and arrow making, spoon carving and flint or friction fire lighting, hunting, rabbit skinning and cooking over your fire pit.

The traditional bush craft adventurous experience of canoeing on the River Adur will give each and every one of you a new outlook and will be reminiscent of artist, author, conservationist, film maker and naturalist William Clifford Mason (Bill Mason) who received a Best Specialised Film BAFTA award for the short film with humorous geographical insights ‘The Rise and Fall of the Great Lakes’ (1970) with music by Robert Fleming and Bruce Mackay.

Shepherds hut

We are very excited about our new Shepherds Huts that are presently being built and are soon to have excellent interiors to make any camper suitably happy and comfortable. These splendid huts are full of character and as you can see have a porch area, are risen up off of ground level to elevate you and yours to superior camping accommodation heights. We are working on a family version and all of our huts are going to be super neat and a place that will truly feel like home amidst their wonderful countryside location.
