SURVIVAL, EXPEDITION and NAVIGATION SKILLS COURSES

Whilst we believe in our mantra of "Adventure is a Mindset" there is no arguing it's also dictated by your skillset. Expand your skillset and you expand your scope and potential for future expedition and adventures.

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.

Basic Survival and Expedition Skills Course

Midlands

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.
