What's it about?
This course is a blend of sound outdoor knowledge coupled with an understanding of nature and its uses. The course equips our clients with the skills needed to feel confident and to live comfortably out of doors regardless of your activity. We cover all of the subjects generally perceived as bushcraft but also explore the natural world and the uses it can be put to. The amount of material covered and the length of the course makes this one of the most in-depth and thorough of its kind. It is an intensive course with all of the skills being taught and demonstrated to a very high level. There is also plenty of time to practice under skilled guidance ensuring students are confident in their knowledge. It has grown to be one of our most popular courses attracting clients from Europe as well as the UK.
The course runs in a five day block followed by a further two day assessment block leaving time for a consolidation period in between allowing you time to practice and perfect your skills.
