Weeklong Bushcraft Courses

These stimulating, challenging and highly informative bushcraft courses depart from the fundamental survival skills in order to deliver a high degree of immersion and experiential learning in combination with the most adaptable skill-sets available to wilderness bushcraft. Assuming a good foundation of knowledge on which to build, these three very different weeklong courses aim to further cultivate and establish individual wilderness competency and awareness, adding many more ‘tools’ to your established skill-base. These courses do require a prerequisite of our Woodlander course or similar experience else-where.
