Train the Trainer – 2 Day Bushcraft Training Course

Complimentary Hultafors bushcraft knife

This foundation course is designed to provide you with the skills and confidence to run some basic bushcraft sessions with your own group.

The course syllabus roughly mirrors our Bushcraft Skills course but importantly there is an extra emphasis on exploring ways in which you would deliver basic bushcraft sessions yourself.  You'll look at assessing risk and keeping a group safe along with delivering fun and engaging sessions.  You will also get the option to sleep in a shelter of your own construction.

Course topics include: safe tool use, firelighting, natural navigation, shelter building, cooking on open fires and with a pit oven, trap building and problem solving, nature watching and much more...                         The course includes plenty of interactive sessions with our friendly and knowledgeable team.

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

All meals and refreshments are provided (excluding lunch on first day - please bring a packed lunch).  Day 1  involves preparing an evening feast of meat and vegetables (alternatives for vegetarians) cooked in a pit oven. Day 2 begins with a delicious hot breakfast, followed by a lunch of rustic bannock bread where you will be encouraged to unleash your culinary creativity.

This bushcraft course has proved very popular with outdoor instructors, teachers, youth leaders and many others who wish to pass on new bushcraft skills.
