Father's Day at Beningbrough

Beningbrough bushcraft activities for Father's Day

Make this Father’s Day one to remember with a day full of special bushcraft activities.

For Father’s Day, get together with Dad at Beningbrough and test your inner survivalist. Have a go at the hands-on activities throughout the day exploring the art of bushcraft.

Run by Yorkshire Dales Bushcraft, head over to the American Garden to make a fire or bake some damper bread using pre-historic methods. Gather round the campfire and learn how to prepare a rainbow trout using an ancient technique from Canada.

  • 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm - Primitive fire lighting – using the bow drill and campfire cooking – making damper bread 
  • 1pm - Fish cooking demonstration: The Canadian Fish Flag method 
  • Throughout the day - decorate a wooden coaster with twine

Dad (and children over 18 years old) can finish off the day with a sample of beer or two from Treboom Brewery, one of the local suppliers to the shop.

All the activities are free to join (normal admission fees apply) and are bookable on the day on a first come first served basis as places are limited. Please come 20 minutes earlier than the activity start time to complete a registration form. Please wear sensible footwear, long trousers and sleeves, with long hair tied back. 

Plus everything else on offer for families...
