Try your hand at some of the bushcraft and survival skills you’ve seen the pro’s showing off. There is a satisfaction in knowing how to start a fire from scratch or sleep comfortably in a forest, it is a primitive skill set that most modern lives are without.
Whether you’re an adult seeking a new experience or want your kids to get that increasingly important wilderness connection, bushcraft is a great way to spend time in the great outdoors. Our Bushcraft Basics activity sessions are great for families and individuals wanting to try something new.
