2 Day Bushcraft Course

2 Day Bushcraft Course | Kent | south east | Essex | Sussex | London

What’s it about?

Over the years our 2 day bushcraft course has proven to be our most popular bushcraft course by some way.  We run the course throughout the year and it’s never quite the same from one to the next due the the changing seasons and variable weather conditions.  And of course different people on the course bringing their own experiences and unique personalities!

The course has been carefully designed to provide you with a solid grounding in the skills and knowledge of bushcraft, survival and woodland living and is suitable for anyone to attend, whether you have previous experience or not.

This 2 day bushcraft course is intended for people who would like to understand what bushcraft is all about and to learn simple, repeatable bushcraft and survival skills, including campers, backpackers, hikers and other outdoors people who wish to learn some of the skills required to be  comfortable in the outdoors, so that you have the time to really enjoy what’s around you.

Or it could be that you’re just curious about bushcraft and want to find out a bit more.  If that’s you, then this is the right course.

Lots of the people who attend this course have no previous bushcraft experience, although we also have people with some prior experience along, and we can say with absolute honesty that everyone leaves knowing more than when they arrived!  Many of the skills that you’ll be taught are easily transferable to other outdoor activities.

What will I do on this 2 day bushcraft course?

You won’t learn bushcraft by watching us so this course, along with all of our others, is entirely hands on.  We’ll explain, then demonstrate and then it’s down to you.  And we won’t move on until you’re ready to.

On our 2 day bushcraft course, based at our ancient woodland camp on the Kent Downs, we will introduce you to the foundations of bushcraft – food, fire, water and shelter, although we’ll start off with the safe use of bushcraft tools.  Over the 2 days you will be shown, and get plenty of opportunity to practice:

At the end of our 2 day bushcraft course you will have a good working knowledge of the skills needed to enjoy your time in the woods or enhance your camping or outdoor activities.

Fun, relaxed and informative

After spending much time watching bushcraft vids on youtube my wife bought me this course for my birthday and i really enjoyed it. The camp is set in a beautiful ancient woodland which was amazing to wake up to. Gary, Nicola and Pete were all very friendly and knowledgeable and imparted much wisdom over the weekend. The other people on the course were also good fun and there was a lot of laughter. It was nice to switch off the phone and decompress for the weekend too. Definitely recommend.

Informative, fun and relaxing

What a wonderfully immersive experience! After completing a few day sessions of bushcraft here and there around the country I wanted to further my knowledge and confidence to thrive in the great outdoors overnight. This event provided all the necessary information to do just that. Gary and co. were a wealth of knowledge and all their wisdom was parted with behind the core values of harmony, sustainability and respect for our natural world. This is a great taster and has left me wanting to do much longer stints in the woods. Cheers.

My partner and I had such a great time on the Bushcraft weekend! My partner had no experience with the activities but she thoroughly enjoyed the itinerary, the fundamental elements of bushcraft were so fun and insightful to learn together. Gary, Nicola and Pete are so welcoming - both Gary and Pete are extremely knowledgable and informative but with a laidback approach which made the weekend feel even more peaceful. We can’t wait to join more courses with Jack Raven. Thanks again

2 Day Bushcraft weekend

The team create a very relaxed, steady paced experience, a perfect de-stressor. I went with my 13 year old son, the pace was just right for both of us, pleant of learning experiences but enough time to apply them, have another go and have fun. Its a really social setting, the woodland site is well set out and organised. The advice is great on kit, Gary is very practical and really has the most appropriate advice for kit you may want for future adventures. Book up and have a great time, you wont regret it.
