Build a Solid Foundation of Bushcraft Skills Over Four Days

On this course you will cover fundamental bushcraft skills in depth with a good amount of guided practice. This is extremely valuable in assimilating the skills. While camping over the four day period you also get the chance to really settle into the beautiful woodland environment. Additional components to this course are navigation and bushcraft cooking.

The course is highly recommended for both beginners and as a valuable step forward for those who have attended shorter courses.
