Dads and Lads Bushcraft courses with Stuart Lawrence -
This course is designed to strengthen your mental endurance and to give you the basics of camp management, hunting, preparing animals for eating, fire starting. It is an intensive course even though it is basic - you will be put through a real life scenario as if you were in that situation. Even though these are basic bushcraft courses they are designed to simulate real-life situations, to teach you the methods of creating your own equipment from your surroundings or to teach you to apply basic techniques to any given scenario.
Cost £100 per day for an adult, children £75 per day for a day's tuition from 10am to 4pm. These courses run all year round preferably on a Sunday but midweek can be arranged. Please contact Stuart via email or mobile for course details and timings.

This course is designed specifically for fathers and sons to enhance pair-bonding, build on the strengths of each individual and to be an introduction into the world of bushcraft.
Inspired by programmes on TV, or after a camping expedition in the garden - it is only by experiencing this world yourself that you can immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and tastes of nature. You will be tutored in how to live comfortably and above all how to respect the forest. This is a hands on course where you are taught knife usage and safety, shelter building, how to make your own tools and utensils. In the evening chill out and enjoy food round the campfire.
