This past week, Feather and Frond Forest School ran our first camp of the summer and we couldn’t have asked for a better week to kick things off!
We had a pack of eager Earth Scouts, ready to connect with friends and the land and learn some earth-based survival skills. A big draw for the kids and major edge for a lot of the parents (if you will forgive me that one pun) was the use of fixed blade knives. While sending their 7 year out into the forest with a knife is understandably scary for a lot of parents, we firmly believe that with proper safety training and supervision, children are capable of handling this versatile tool and fostering a lifelong relationship with knives and other hand tools.
