Return to the wilderness

The modern world is a stressful place, but under the trees you can get back to what really matters.

Popular with friends and couples, two-day survival courses run from June to October. Led by an expert instructor, you’ll discover how to find all you need in the woods and sleep under the stars in a shelter you built yourself.

For younger visitors, we also offer fun one-day family bushcraft adventures where you can learn survival skills and get closer to nature.

Bows at the ready!
