Family Survival Course

Share new experiences together on our Family Bushcraft and Survival Course.

This course is a one-day and one-night course aimed at parents and children who want to learn how to live more comfortably in the wilds. The course is designed to be a family friendly course, enabling parents and children to discover together some of the delights of learning to live with the resources available to us in nature.

We cover skills for everyone including shelter building, campfire cookery, tracking skills and games, choosing materials for and lighting your own fire, knot work, natural navigation and making damper bread.

There is also time for the adults to gain one to one tuition from our instructors, including lighting fire by friction, safe use of an axe, and how to select and care for your Bushcraft knife.

During the course you'll enjoy a lunch of campfire cooked sausages and an evening meal based around pigeon breast, which you will be taught how to prepare from a game bird still in feather. In the morning we also learn how to make damper bread.

The course starts at 10:00 and we break camp at 09:30 the following morning.

  • £100 per participant

This course takes place entirely in the outdoors. If inclement weather is forecast, or develops, then a large parachute is erected with a camp fire underneath. This enables us to keep everyone warm and dry- this also allows the course to continue.

    Set in the Heart of the stunning Peak District National Park our woodlands are based on this beautiful 3800 acre historical estate, home to Lord and Lady Edward Manners. A warm and caring family estate, woodlands comprise over 600 acres, and our beautiful camp is nestled on the banks of the river Wye. Surrounded by a mature mixed canopy of Oak, Ash, Birch, and numerous conifers the diverse mix of flora is home to a wondferful array of large and small fauna. You may spot Fallow, or see the sign of badger, and will be immersed into a cacophany of bird noise as you share the home of owl, buzzard, woodpecker and more.


  • East Lothian- Scotland

    Our courses in East Lothian run from Blinkbonny Wood, a 100 acre mixed canopy woodland, nestling on the edge of the Lammermuir Hills which provides easy access to hill and moor.

    Approximately 20 miles from Edinburgh and 5 miles from the historic market town of Haddington.

    It is close to Longyester, and therefore public transport to the area is easily achievable with international flights coming in to Edinburgh, as well as Edinburgh Waverley Train Station.

    The canopy is a mixed patchwork with birch, hazel and scots pine a plenty. Gorse throws in its usual colours in the year and at the woodland boundaries there are stunning views of the hills in one direction, the coast in another, and bordering farmland.

    Within our woodlands here you are likely to see Roe Deer, and we have regular sign of badger. There is also a variety of species of owl.

    We operate weekend and day courses from this woodlands and occasional longer duration courses that require access to the hill side. We also offer private courses for schools, parties, stag dos etc.
