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.

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.

    With very kind permission of the Duke and Dutchess of Rutland, our courses here are set within the stunning private 16000 acre Belvoir Castle estate boasting truly beautiful areas of ancient woodland.

    The venue is located just outside the village of Nipton in rural Leicestershire around 6 miles west of Grantham. Our main base is set within a remote 400 Acre solid block of Woodlands, with no road noise or light pollution, and with access to the wider Estate. With 31 of the 32 species of native trees the canopy is simply stunning, and the vast acreage provides us with plenty of scope for renewable resources. As you would expect, there is an abundance of wildlife and flora.

    We operate all of our courses here for individuals to book on to, including our Woodland Ways Weekend, we also offer private bookings, school bookings, stag do's and corporate events. Toilet facilities are provided by means of composting toilets and there are central covered teaching area's within the woodlands comprising of timber and canvas structures.

    If arriving for a course please do not head to the Castle, in order to protect the privacy of the family. Please ensure when travelling to the venue you use the directions and not rely on Sat Nav in order to prevent getting lost.
