Bushcraft Survival Experience

Looking for a unique gift for a loved one? Fancy trying to learn a new skill? Or just want something to do as a family for a few hours? Then our Bushcraft Survival Experiences are for you! With the ability to choose from a 2-hour introductory or a 4-hour comprehensive experience, there is something to suit every budget.

Our friendly instructors have been teaching the Bushcraft and Survival skills to young people and adults for the last 10+ years. Each with their own specialisms, you can expect to learn a range of skills covering firelighting, knife skills, tree identification, outdoor cooking and teamwork!

Our courses only ever have a maximum of 6 participants, meaning you are not lost in a sea of other people. If however, you want to come as a group of 6+ we can accomodate!

2-hour Introductory Bushcraft Survival Experience

Expect a packed 2 hours of flames, knives, food and fun! Complete beginners and children aged 7+ (accompanied by an adult) are welcome .

Course content

  • Tree identification and firewood selection
  • Knife use and safety
  • Firelighting without matches
  • Cooking a tasty campfire treat (sweet or savory dampers / bread twists depending on your preference!)
  • Whittling project

4-hour Bushcraft Survival Experience

Grab your walking boots and muddy clothes – you are going to need them! These 4 hours are an experience to remember. Again, complete beginner and children aged 7+ (accompanied by an adult) are welcome.

Course content

Bushcraft Lunch choices:

  • Bushcraft Stew and Dumplings: whenever possible, the meat used is locally caught rabbit. You will be the ones skinning and preparing the meat! Alternatives: beef, chicken or vegetable.
  • Fish and Jacket Potato: fresh fish from the fishmongers is our starting point. Sometimes they are gutted, sometimes not. Jacket Potatoes cooked on a campfire are the best potato option.
  • Fruit Crumble: For those with a sweet tooth, a campfire cooked crumble and custard is perfection!
