Bushcraft is becoming more and more popular as an experience day here at our centres, and this is because our sessions provide the perfect mix of fun, skill building, and the thrill of knowing that, if you ever found yourself stranded, secluded or stuck, you may just have what it takes to survive.
Our bushcraft equipment is available to use for the full duration of your experience, and this includes quality flint and steels, kettles, tarps, paracord and more. Don’t recognise any of these words? All the more reason to get yourself booked on to our bushcraft experience!
This is an experience that isn’t widely available wherever you go, so it’s just as much about rare thrills as it is Bear Grylls.
