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, green wood carving, making damper bread and noticing the myriad of resources and information to be found in a woodland environment.

There may also be time for the adults to gain some tuition from our instructors, including lighting fire by friction 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.
