Would you survive a night in the wilderness? Spend the weekend getting to know the outdoors and learning what it takes to survive without any of your home comforts. Experienced bushcraft instructors will teach you fundamental survival techniques such as how to light a fire; build your own shelter; purify water; and how to catch your own meal. With an emphasis on hands-on learning this is a safe, fun experience conducted entirely in the wilderness. You will develop skills in navigation so that you can efficiently find your way around the countryside. You will be shown how to make natural cordage from plant fibres, construct traps and snares, and learn how to prepare rabbit, fish and birds for consumption. As the sun sets on the woodland, you will be sleeping in the shelter you have built for yourself and in the morning you'll be sharpening knives and discovering dozens of edible plants that you can try for yourself. This is the ultimate experience for anyone who loves the outdoors and a fun course for anyone who likes an adventure.

The course runs from Friday evening to Sunday midday, so you will spend two nights in the wilderness. You will be given a safety briefing on arrival before setting up the camp. You will prepare an evening meal before going to bed in a tent on the first night. Breakfast will be bright and early at 07.30, and then you will commence a full day of survival and bushcraft activities. You will make your own shelters from natural materials to sleep in that night. On the Sunday there will be time for a few more activities after breakfast before you depart at midday. This is a truly memorable experience that will leave you much more able to survive in the wilderness.
