Inspiring first steps into bushcraft

Was brilliant to be able to get away in to the Jack Raven camp after lockdown. It was all outdoors and I felt safe with the social distancing measures in place. Gary and Peter were excellent teachers, always happy to answer questions, offer tips and ever patient. As a complete beginner, I learnt a lot and would now be keen to do a two day course with Jack Raven.

Really enjoyed our day adventure at Jack Raven Bushcraft, from learning some basics of foraging to knife handling and fire building in a fantastic outdoor space. Thanks for a delicious lunch and we hope to be back soon.
