Have you ever wanted to learn bushcraft skills and be more confident in the great outdoors, have a deeper understanding of nature and be able to read the signs wildlife displays.
This course set in beautiful Kent woodland is ideal for the person new to bushcraft or someone wanting to brush up on their camp craft skills. We create a relaxed friendly camp where everyone shares in the running of the camp and creates a woodland community for a long weekend. It’s important to us that not only is your stay about learning valuable earth living skills but its fun, safe and profoundly satisfying.
During the weekend you will also experience many Nature Awareness activities that enhance our senses and open us to see what the natural world has to offer and assist us to feel more at home in the wilderness. Nature is so often our greatest teacher.
