About the event

The Ultimate Bushcraft Course

Our Bushcraft Weekends are designed as the perfect progression from our beginners course. However, if you're eager to dive right in, this experience is ideal for you.

As always with our experiences, we dedicate ample time for practical application, enabling you to master the skills, refine techniques, and consult with our instructors.

Topics that we can cover are,

Knife Safety: Learn how to use a knife safely, including different cutting techniques, tool care, and best practices.

Tinder Collection: Learn about different types of tinder and how various species of trees are used for fire lighting.

Fire Lighting: Explore a range of fire lighting techniques, and by the end of the day, we guarantee you'll be able to light and sustain a fire.

Shelter Building: Find a suitable location and build a shelter using materials available around you.

Camp Pioneering and Craft: Learn how to make cordage from natural materials and create your own camp gadgets—useful items that will make your life in the woods more comfortable.

Traps and Snares: Learn the principles of tracking and trapping small game, including what traps and snares to use and where to set them.

Preparing Fresh Game: Learn to dress and prepare a small game animal that you have targeted while setting up your traps and snares.

Water Collection & Filtration: Identify where and how to collect water and make it safe for drinking.

Whittling: Learn the steps to whittle your very own spoon from timber found within the woodland.

Natural Navigation: Learn basic techniques to find your way using natural signs, such as the sun, stars, and terrain features.

Wild Edibles: Identify and gather wild edible plants and learn about their uses in survival situations.

Primitive Cooking: Cook food using primitive methods, such as over an open fire or using hot rocks.

Animal Tracking: Study animal tracks and signs to understand wildlife behavior and movements.

Throughout the weekend, we will provide hot and cold drinks, a basic lunch each day, a hot cooked evening meal on the first day, and a hot cooked breakfast the following morning.
