Going primitive

Three scouters (Barry, David & Aaron) travelled to Portlick Scout Campsite in Westmeath for the Most Primitive Scout Experience (MPSE) Basics training day. MPSE is an International Scouting group which specialises in bushcraft, survival or backwoods skills. MPSE was founded in Holland. In 2008, the Dutch MPSE team came to Ireland for the Jamboree and the MPSE Ireland Fellowship was founded as a result.

As part of the the day, the lads learned about wood carving, making hamocks, making string from nettles, cooking using a cardboard box, lighting fire by flint and how to sharpen a knife. The next MPSE basic day will be in Killcully, Cork in November.

  1. MPSE Ireland were very happy to have Barry, David & Aaron attend their recent Basic Day Activity.
    The Caherdavin Leaders are the First leaders from Limerick to Attend such an event.
    Right lads, you now possess new skills that you coule easly show other Leaders within your county.
    Yours in Primitive Scouting
