Excellent day out learning all things bush craft. I took my husband for a day course that covered knife skills, fire making and foraging and we had a great day out. Really recommend this company, the guidance was great.

1 day Bushcraft course

What a beautiful place. Friendly people knowledgeable and very welcoming. I had a day that I will remember. We were not rushed and everything was explained fully. The camp is well laid out and comfortable. The weather was kind so lucky! I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in the outdoor life. I am looking forward to booking another experience.

Last month l was with my family canoeing the creeks and lakes of Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada. I felt very guilty and inadequate allowing the other members of my family to set up camp etc. Having completed this day course l can return with confidence next year and make a valid competent contribution to the wild camping in that glorious part of the world.
