to book onto these dates or arrange a date to suit your diary.

It must be understood that this course isn't for your hardened outdoor survival and bush craft enthusiast, we supply all the equipment for the sessions and then give you information on all the equipment you will need to ensure you have a very comfortable wilderness bushcraft experience on your own.

We often journey to a suitable spot by Canadian canoe, taking all that we need and can't find at the location with us.

We don't get you to buy your kit through us, we offer advice on where to buy the cheapest and in most cases how to recycle and make your own kit cheaply or even better for FREE!

We introduce you to food that is tasty and enjoyable, you won't be eating bugs and leaves (unless you really want to!!)

Survival isn't all about living off the land, it's also about being prepared, having the correct equipment and the right amount of food and water to last you for the duration of your stay in the outdoors and a little extra for the unexpected.

During our one day basic bush-craft course we aim to introduce you to the very basics of outdoor survival techniques looking at the following

* Basic health and safety
* Basic Personal equipment
* Personal First Aid and Personal First Aid equipment
* Environmental impact, leaving no trace of your camp
* Fire lighting, wood collection and preparation
* Food preparation and Cooking
* Ropes, string and knot tying
* Basic Shelter and shelter building

Reviews for Bushcraft -

“Canoeing and Bushcraft at Lake Coniston”

This was a fantastic course which was very well organised and also very informative. Both Dave and Chris' expertise was evident. The highlight for my 8 year old son was the sawing, whittling and fire lighting whilst for me a brilliant 'sail' on the canoes back up the lake.

“Awesome backwoods adventure”

Dave and Chris put on a masterclass of backwoods skills which kept the whole family entertained for over 5hours - no mean feat! The highlight was the shelters we had to build as we all chipped in. Some of the kids were a bit disappointed their dads didn't stay in them overnight though!
Great day in the woods, highly recommend to anyone of any age. Dave and Chris had bags of energy and enthusiasm which helped everyone enjoy the day immensely
