Would you survive a night in the wilderness? Spend the weekend getting to know the outdoors and learning what it takes to survive without any of your home comforts. Experienced bushcraft instructors will teach you fundamental survival techniques such as how to light a fire, build your own shelter, purify water, and catch your own meal.

With an emphasis on hands-on learning, you’ll develop skills in navigation, be shown how to make natural cordage from plant fibres, construct traps and snares, and learn how to prepare rabbit, fish and birds for consumption. As the sun sets on the woodland, you’ll sleep in the shelter you’ve built and in the morning you’ll be sharpening knives and discovering dozens of edible plants that you can try for yourself. This is the ultimate experience for anyone who loves the outdoors and a fun course for anyone who likes an adventure.

What's Included?

  • Fully hands-on, practical course conducted entirely in the wilderness
  • Learn how to prepare evening meals and light a fire
  • Learn to build your own shelter
  • Guided tour of the woods showing edible plants
  • Game and water preparation
  • Woodland Sauna
  • Personalised voucher and message card
  • Cancellation indemnity

What happens on the day?

The course runs from Friday evening to Sunday midday, so you will spend two nights in the wilderness. You will be given a safety briefing on arrival before setting up the camp. You will prepare an evening meal before going to bed in a tent on the first night. Breakfast will be bright and early at 07.30, and then you will commence a full day of survival and bushcraft activities.

You will make your own shelters from natural materials to sleep in that night.  On the Sunday there will be time for a few more activities after breakfast before you depart at midday. This is a truly memorable experience that will leave you much more able to survive in the wilderness.

"Alone in the woods"

Setting off from London I headed off to the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. After a safety briefing, our group headed off into the private woodland to learn the basics of bushcraft and survival.
We started by learning how to carve wood, use knives safely and were shown how to build two different types of shelter, without using any sort of binding. Next it was our turn to give it a go and build a wind and waterproof shelter, just using the materials around us.
Next up, was the really exciting bit – making fire!! The instructors gave excellent tuition and had lots of time and patience for us all to get it very wrong, until as if by magic, we got it spectacularly right! Being able to create fire from just two unassuming solid objects feels incredible and is a lot harder than it looks.
Although I was slightly apprehensive about eat stinging nettles, after watching the youngest member of our group give it a go, I thought I better try.
The day was exhausting but I learnt so much – only wish I could have stayed for the whole night and camped out.
