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.
