Bushcraft Courses & Outdoor Wilderness Survival Activities in Kent
Jack Raven Bushcraft courses take place in Westwell, Kent, just 50 miles from the centre of London, in quite stunning ancient woodland in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have access to around 60 or so acres of beautiful broadleaf woodland, perfect for corporate team building activities, picking up new outdoor skills and having fun with nature.
Our outdoor activities are designed so that you don’t need any previous experience, and the sessions are entirely hands on so that you leave us with simple, practical and repeatable skills. There is a focus on both team building exercises and individual bushcraft skills that are essential to make sure you can survive in the wild. We are certain that you will have a lot of fun along the way!
Your training takes place at an expedition style camp with a yurt and wood burning stove, a parachute, a kitchen area, work benches and a composting toilet. We have areas where you can pitch a hammock, tarp or small tent, cleared of standing and hanging dead wood, or you can camp on a nearby working farm campsite. It’s the perfect environment for developing survival skills.
We place a strong emphasis on natural history, woodland management and conservation throughout all of our teachings as we believe that this knowledge should inform everything we do in bushcraft. Preserving and enhancing the woodland in which we teach is factored into all of our outdoor activities. For example, during our courses you will learn how to prune trees in a way that will allow them to heal afterwards, and any temporary shelters built will always be carefully taken down after each course.
Our bushcraft experience in Kent offers a wide range of organised outdoor tasks and team building activities covering wilderness living skills, woodlore, bodging, camp craft, tracking, earth skills, carving, and wild food courses. We offer a range of wilderness courses, some take a day and are more specialised or you can join us for a bushcraft weekend. For those who would like a truly immersive experience, we offer both 5 day bushcraft courses and 5 day survival courses – here you can learn all of the principles and skills needed to get by in the wild.
