Our Taster Days are designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. If you're a complete novice and have never done anything like this before, don't worry. All of our staff have experience working closely with people to help achieve and get the most out of their experience. Throughout the day there will be plenty of hands on time to learn different skills, as doing is a much better way of learning than sitting and watching. We will then all move on together when everyone is ready. All equipment, PPE, food and drinks will be provided to you, and you will receive a FREE Learn Bushcraft Survival Kit to use and take away with you. What could you get up to on a Bushcraft Taster Day?
