A selection of activities to hone those outdoor skills and to get back in touch with Nature! All of the activities below can be packaged up to deliver a unique experience tailored to you and in locations across the UK…

Bushcraft and Survival…­­

Gourmet Bushcraft

Not one for the faint hearted! On these sessions you will make your own meal using almost exclusively wild found ingredients. Whether panassing a trout, plucking a pigeon or butchering a deer, you'll learn a lot about your relationship with food. Including where it comes from!

Fire Lighting in the Wild

Learn the first and most important of our basic skills. No matches or lighters will be found here! Fire Steels are the order of the day. Learn the importance of fire in a survival situation and those who are feeling brave can even get the hang of fire-by-friction. Culminating in a fire lighting competition!

Shelter Building Challenge

In a survival situation you'll last 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water and only 3 hours without shelter! A misunderstood danger, our experienced instructors will teach you the best way to construct various shelters and the conditions that need to be taken into account.

Navigation Skills

Who else uses their phone to get around and would be lost without it!? Team work and critical thinking are vital in the development of map reading skills and it is an incredible feeling of accomplishment when a map goes from confusing to clear. All while taking in some beautiful vistas.

Foraging in the Bush

Imagine being stranded in the wild without food or water. What would you do? This session will help you to find edible food while out in the wild, what to look for, where to look for it and most importantly what to avoid!


Knife Skills and Carving

A fun skill to learn. Your instructor will explain the basic steps to using a knife and the skills to engage. Then it's up to you to shape out the item you'd most like to make. The calm and focus required leads to a really therapeutic session, out in the woods with some peace and tranquility.

Target Sports…

Archery

Players channel their inner Robin Hoods and compete by shooting for the highest score/most balloons etc. Learn to grip, stand and aim correctly with our professional instructors who will guide you through this activity. It is great fun and groups love to spend summer time trying something new.

Rifle Shooting

After an initial safety brief, you will be guided through a first shoot to zero the rifles. From there, increasingly challenging targets will be introduced until a final shoot out competition. Our instructors are all qualified and experienced so your session with be both interesting and safe.

Axe Throwing

Everyone loves getting a bullseye and we can provide that thrill in this fun axe throwing activity. The guests will get a chance to practice with our experienced instructors before competition time begins! We will then see who has the best arm and the keenest eye.

Get Creative…

Willow weaving is an age old set of skills which have been used to build shelters and sculptures. In this session you will get back in touch with your creative side as we learn to weave willow baskets or build rudimentary shelter.

Gourmet Bushcraft
