Our bushcraft sessions are about bringing together people and nature, survival and art - hence the "craft" in bushcraft.
Developing core skills through fun activities such as shelter building and fire starting creates a recreational, but at the same time educational, experience.
We teach bushcraft to give people the rudimentary skills and competence to spend the night, or more, out in the wild. From there, with newfound knowledge and confidence, we want to inspire individuals to go and thrive out amongst nature!
Developing a relationship with the wild is intrinsically beneficial for wellbeing, and its fun.
