Bushcraft Skills - 2 Day Training Course

Complimentary Hultafors bushcraft knife

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to spend two days in a stunning location looking at fundamental bushcraft skills.

This bushcraft course introduces new topics and expands on the content of our Introduction to Bushcraft.
You will learn safe knife handling skills and more in-depth fire lighting techniques.  Shelter building sessions will incorporate the use of natural materials and tarps and you can choose to sleep in a shelter of your own construction.   You'll cook on an open fire and enjoy an evening meal served in a ‘Maori-style’ pit oven before going to the tree house to watch badgers.  There will be an opportunity to look at basic wood carving and if time allows you may also explore natural cordage or another aspect of bushcraft.  With clear skies we'll examine navigating using the sun.

There will be plenty of time for you to relax, practise and hone skills and proficiency in each of the topic areas, and soak up the beautiful surroundings.

Please note this course is not suitable for young children and would better suit those aged around 10 or above. Children under 15 must be accompanied by a paying adult.
