Black Swamp Bushcraft Gathering
(formally the NW Ohio Bushcraft Campout)
June 1-4th 2023 (Bluffton, OH)
A working bushcraft and experimental archeology event where we build structures and simple machines to learn the techniques our ancestors use to not only survive, but thrive in a primitive world.
The skills we learn from the Black Swamp Gatherings will give us a leg up if we ever happen to find ourselves in a survival situation.
What you can see and do:
- Primitive Wooded Camping (Hammock Friendly)
- Outdoor Skills Workshops – we’ll be building throughout the gathering
- Chuckwagon Meals – We don’t have the 2023 details hammered out quite yet, but Dinner and quite possibly other meals and coffee should be available for the campers.
- Campfire Socializing – Wind down each night with a fire and conversation.
Attendance is free, but the expectation the group projects will be collaborative.
Our Chuckwagon chef accepts donations for the food he’s providing.
