Discovery - Basic Bushcraft - 3 Day Camp

Course Details
I originally attended a Discovery course (which covers basic bushcraft skills) with Natural Pathways and after initial introductions and instructions went straight to work on a debris shelter. This hands on experience showed me that its one thing reading about it and its another thing doing it. Things can take a lot longer than you think. For example, collecting 2 feet of leaf litter for your shelter, the minimum amount needed for sufficient warmth, sound easy in a book. You are encourage to sleep in your shelter which I did without a sleeping bag (my choice) but was cold as I had only managed to collect about half the leaf litter needed. This was an excellent lesson in the reality of bushcraftsurvival.

The instructors are very friendly people, passionate about what they teach, and work tirelessly to make your weekend fruitful and productive. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are not forced to do anything you dont want to do.They cram a lot into the course and you learn plenty of skills to take home and practice.

There is a ‘spiritual’slant to the courses in the vein of Tom Brown and an emphasis on nature awareness and respect for the natural environment.

The 'drum stalk' for example is an exercise where you find your way through the woods blindfolded, at night to the source of a drum beat. It is a fascinating experience and even if you are not convince about the spiritual aspects, it is a great exercise for developing sensitivity and awareness sometimes with surprising results..

I have since helped out on a couple of the same courses which has been an excellent way of reinforcing my knowledge and skills , but have learned just as much on them as on the initial course because each course is individual and there is always something new to learn.

I always come home feeling very enriched and inspired after the time I have spent at Natural Pathways.
