What age?

Is it for a Scouting organisation (so you might want to make it badge-oriented)?

How long do you want each activity to last? 10 minutes? An hour? A day?

No , im organizing this camp so i am responsible of activities and planning i have 6 hours for activities in the first day no problem for 10 minute to 1 hour activities but i need some building crafts ideas that have a survival theme as making a shelter or anything related
Shelter building could take as much time as you want - it can be as badic as letting the kids loose in a wood for an hour with some basic tools & rules (say, just 6 feet of twine, and no taking live wood), and then put them inside the shelter while you pour water on it.

Or you could have a lashing race, giving each team six staves or broom handlesnand rope. They have to build a thing, a frame of some kind, lashing the staves together to carry a team member around a simple obstacle course through the countryside.

Have a look at "backwoods cooking", where they cook simple foods over campfires, such as dampers, sausages or cake mixture inside an orange skin.

im waiting your answer bro
Patience is a virtue.

I'm probably in a different time zone to you, and I also have a job to go to.
