About the Course

Located between Canterbury and Ashford, join us at our ancient woodland camp on the beautiful Kent Downs for this introductory 1 day bushcraft course.

We’ve put together this 1 day bushcraft course for people whose time is precious but would like to gain a thorough grounding in the key skills of outdoor bushcraft and survival. So we’ve created a package that will ensure that you leave us with simple, repeatable skills that’ll give you the confidence to broaden your horizons in the great outdoors.

During your time spent with us on this 1 day course, you will:

Learn how to safely use a knife,
Build a debris shelter and gain an understanding of the design principles involved,
Have plenty of practise creating a flame using matches, fire steels, fire pistons, wire wool & a battery, solar mirrors, flint & steel, chemicals,
Make char cloth, create a tinder bundle and blow an ember into flame,
Find, filter and purify your own water,
Go for a woodland walk to gain an insight into some of the trees and plants around us and what they can be used for,
Gather your own materials and light a fire following a method that will work in all weather conditions.

At the end of the course you will have a good working knowledge of the skills needed to enjoy your time in the woods or enhance your camping or outdoor activities.

About us and the venue

Courses in the summer are held outdoors in our woodland camp complete with covered work areas, an outdoor kitchen and a composting loo. Courses in the winter are held in our workshop in a converted barn.
