We run courses in survival and expedition skills giving you skills to plan and prepare for your own adventures. Our courses cover a wide range of subjects from basic survival skills such as fire and shelter to advanced camp craft, wilderness first aid, and preparing for longer more remote expeditions.
The aim of this course is to teach you the skills needed to survive and thrive in the wilderness and enable you to have your own adventures and expeditions in the outdoors. You will learn the skills and techniques to light fires and use them to cook, build shelter, filter and purify water, use knives safely and efficiently , signal for help and some input on equipment selection and planning.
This weekend course is more of a fun, safe learning experience than an endurance event. This course will be run at a beautiful private woodland close to Market Harborough. Only 10 minutes from the A14 and in between the junctions for the A1, M1 andM6. We are a family run business and encourage young people to get outdoors more, as such children under 14 with a paying adult are free on our woodland courses.
Based from a remote lodge at the foot of the Cairngorms, our advanced will be a pass or fail course with genuine long term benefits to those who pass.
Course will cover:
Advanced fire craft
Land navigation in a mountain and woodland environment
Basic rope work
Small game prep
All the above plus an opportunity to test your skills in the UK’s only designated wilderness during our 48hr test phase.
