Weekend Bushcraft Course

This weekend bushcraft course in Dorset and Hampshire, covers all the basics of bushcraft and survival skills.

Set in some stunning woodland in Dorset or Hampshire, this weekend bushcraft course will open your eyes to what is possible in a woodland wilderness setting.

This course is great for those who are unsure or just starting out their bushcraft and survival skills training. This course is by no means a military exercise or a tree hugging session. We will teach you all the basic skills you will need to survive and thrive in a woodland setting. This course is suitable for adults and children and is a great way to spend a weekend with friends.

 The subjects covered on the weekend bushcraft course include:

  • Fire lighting
  • Shelter building
  • Traps and tracking
  • Preparing food (Fin, Feather and Fur)
  • Campfire cooking
  • Natural navigation
  • Safe tool use
  • Water sourcing
  • Natural Cord
  • Carving
  • Shelter
  • Knife Skills
  • Foraging 
  • Tool care and knife law

We believe that this is best learned in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we will give you lots of hands on experience, so be prepared to get stuck in!

Our instructors will be on site at all times so you will be able to ask as many questions as you want and have the opportunity for some one on one training if you so wish. We run this weekend bushcraft course for you and we want you to get the most out of it. The content is very flexible, so if you want to delve deeper in to one subject just let us know and we will organize it for you.

We do not do bushcraft by numbers and we don’t just parrot information from books. We test and practice everything we teach so we know it works!

    Undoubtedly one of the best weekend courses I’ve been on. Loads going on, lots to learn, great food, great teachers and just a truly awesome experience.

    Definitely will be booking up the canoe expedition, axe course and the archery course. I’m now officially addicted.
    Thank you guys

    this is simply the best bushcraft course i have been on. jon is an excellent teacher, very patient and knowledgeable, and a very nice guy. this course provides all the fundamentals of bushcraft in a friendly and fun atmosphere, the food is great and and helping to prepare it yourself by skinning/gutting or plucking it adds an extra element to the meal that places the food and the animal in context. i dont know how he places so much content into the course without ever feeling rushed or that you never spent enough time on each task, this isnt the type of course where you rush from one subject to the next without ever really grasping it (unlike some other courses), but he still manages to pack so much into the weekend that you leave feeling that you have accomplished so much and had a great time while doing so. i would reccomend it to anyone!

    The Bushcraft Weekend is a great course. I couldn’t believe how much could be fitted into one weekend. The whole course was relaxed but we learned a lot and there was always something to do. The instructors (John and Jack) were very knowledgeable, very helpful and open to questions at any time. The location and atmosphere was wonderful and it felt good to learn what nature has to offer. At night or in between lessons we were all having a good laugh whilst sitting around an open fire. I would recommend this to absolutely anyone who is interested in bushcraft or keen to get outside for a weekend and learn new useful skills.
