About the Event

Join us for a weekend of immersive rural skills, spending two nights under canvas, where we will guide you through the key skills to thrive in nature with limited equipment.

Arriving on Friday afternoon the first task is setting up camp (we can cater for tents, hammocks & tarp ground dwellers).  If you haven't used your kit before, we'll be on hand to help & teach knots & how to choose a camp site.  Once setup we turn to fire, looking at a number of fire lighting techniques, utilising natural materials from the local area.

We then turn to food!  Again utilising ingredients from the local area, some which we may be able to forage on the day (subject to local availability!).  We'll come together to make a woodland stew, including fish or game (vegetarian’s also catered for).

Through Saturday we look at tool use (knives, saws & axes), using them to make equipment for you to take home, game preparation, navigation basics & water treatment techniques.  Breakfast & lunch are not provided.  We will have a communal dinner, utilising the game you have prepared.

Sunday we'll wake & break camp then make bannock break for breakfast.

Due to the activities involved & length of the course, the minimum age is 16 years.  Please contact us if you would like to make a special provision.
