Creative bushcraft courses for all ages and abilities!

Aims and Objectives:

To empower, encourage and inspire people of all ages, to use various outdoor skills and techniques which will confidently enable them to enjoy and be more aware of the natural environment and its resources, with a sustainable approach.

We understand that people absorb information when they are enjoying themselves, and because of this, we teach with humour and fun!

Peripheral vision and sensory/present-moment awareness,

Our courses cater for 1:1 & mentoring programmes, school & youth groups, companies & corporate team building events, children's birthday parties, stag and hen parties, and support for vision quest and solitude/hiking adventures.
