The current regulations (Regulation 6) to fight COVID-19 state that up to 6 people can meet in the outdoors. Until the regulations are relaxed further, we are proposing to run our courses on the following basis: Total Group Size: 5 participants and 1 Instructor at a time.
The Aim of this course is to teach you the skills needed to survive and thrive in the wilderness and woodlands. You will learn the skills and techniques to light fires, identify edible plants, build shelters, make traps and snares, purify water, prepare rabbit, fish and birds, use knives and saws safely and efficiently and navigate around the country. This Level 2 Bushcraft, Survival and Wilderness Livings Skills course is accredited by the NCFE. The weekend course is more of a fun, safe learning experience than an endurance event. If you have a group, you can book your own weekend or 2 night course during the week.
For Police, Fire Service, NHS or HM Forces discounts please contact us on 01453 752220 if you have a Blue Light Card.
This is a 'hands on' course. The instructors will explain and demonstrate but you will get the opportunity to have a go at everything!
The skills and techniques you need to live in the wilderness are expertly demonstrated and explained so that you can master them before leaving the course. You need have no knowledge of survival skills to attend this course. This is learning through experience at its best. Most people come on this course as individuals or pairs. If you have a large group, please contact us for your own weekend.
The itinerary may change depending on weather, but all subjects will be covered.
