Debris shelter 2


We took the opportunity to make a 2 person debris shelter during our 5 Day Bushcraft Course.  We already had an open sided kennel shelter in place so it was really easy to modify it and turn it into a 2 person shelter.  We added another sturdy spar, laid hazel stems along the side and part of the roof and then covered the lot in a deep layer of leaf litter.

A couple of the guys spent the night in it and the next day said that it was incredibly warm in there.

If you look carefully in the photo above, you’ll see a bracken covered 1 person kennel shelter in the background.

Of course once your debris shelter is built you will want to reward yourself with some food. Have you read our blog post on cooking tasty ramson and feta fritters?
