Get Back to Nature with our Bushcraft Programme
Bushcraft uses ancient methods that enable us to thrive and survive in the natural environment. In the past these essential skills were handed down from generation to generation, but in this modern world in which we live in today our interaction with our natural surroundings has become disconnected. These bushcraft skills are generally no longer required in our usual day to day lives.
However the acquisition of bushcraft skills and knowledge is now for many a popular outdoor adventure activity where we can get back to nature and live like our ancestors. You never know these basic survival skills may become very useful in the future. Bushcraft skills include outdoor activities such as firecraft, tracking, hunting, fishing, shelter building, the use of tools such as knives and axes, foraging, hand-carving wood, container construction from natural materials, and rope and twine-making, among others.
Our bushcraft programme gives you the opportunity to explore our natural environment, learn some of these ancient survival skills that our ancestors used every day and put them to the test.
It is an ideal programme for school parties, youth groups or corporate teams looking to try something different and challenging in the natural environment.
