Basic wilderness living course
This course starts at 19:00 Friday to Midday Sunday. You will spend two nights in a beautiful nature reserve. Being met by Mike you will receive a safety brief for the weekend’s activities and then the fun begins.
Night one you will have the opportunity to sleep under a tarp and enjoy a relaxed lesson by the fire with plenty of hot drinks to enjoy. After saying good night Mike and team will leave you to relax by a fire and enjoy the wonderful sounds of the reserve.
Breakfast will be at 07:30, then we start our Bushcraft training which includes shelter building from natural materials for you to sleep in. Sunday we continue with our activities and get to look at each other’s shelters for tips on how to improve for future courses.
As all good things must come to an end, we will have a de-brief and say good bye and look forward to seeing you all again in the future.
