What’s it about?

Located between Canterbury and Ashford, join us at our ancient woodland camp on the beautiful Kent Downs for this introductory 1 day trapping course.

Trapping played an important role in food acquisition for our hunter gatherer ancestors and represents an important aspect of bushcraft.

Whilst it is illegal in the UK to set and use the traps taught on this course, it’s a useful skill to have.

During your time spent with us on this 1 day trapping course, you will:

  • Learn about UK law around snaring, trapping and fishing,
