The Solo – Advanced Survival Skills Course

Imagine yourself in the heart of the Lake District national park, surrounding you are mountains, lakes, rivers, farmland, tarns and forest. The weather is unpredictable, the terrain is rugged and food is absent save what you trap, fish, dig up and forage. You have limited clothing and equipment to support you, but you do have essential skills and knowledge of your environment. You are totally reliant on your ability to effectively apply your bushcraft, and on your understanding of the fauna and flora that surrounds you.

You are completely reliant on your skill , determination and knowledge. The instructors will be on-hand at all times to answer questions and offer guidance, although you will be encouraged to cope ‘solo’.

Set aside a certain number of days, during which you shall be content with the scantiest and cheapest fare, with course and rough dress, saying to yourself the while: ‘Is this the condition that I feared?” – Seneca the Younger.
We advise that you have completed the Woodlander course (or course of equivalent standard) and have a good level of fitness. This is a difficult and challenging course, but is extremely rewarding.
“For the records I had lost just over 8lbs, that was recorded after breakfast so probably a bit more, it was a great week, I was amazed at how you tune in to your surroundings becoming acutely aware of shifts in weather and how your visual recognition of the various food items becomes very sharp. I guess its more a case of slotting back into our real awareness level, from the filtered version we have to use in modern life to stop us overloading our senses, I can already feel my senses fading slightly, good to know that when I need them they kick back in.”– David Kennedy
