Not at all. We offer courses at all levels, whether you are just starting out or looking to expand your knowledge. We can tailor your bushcraft and survival training just the way you want it, in our own fun, interesting and unique way. Many of our courses and expeditions require no experience of bushcraft or camping. They are designed to introduce you to the skills and knowledge we teach, building your experience as you go. Other courses build on the basics and challenge people to further their skills and experience.

Generally, you will be able to bring your own equipment. However, if we think your equipment is unsafe, or unsuitable, or if standard equipment is required, it will not be permitted. It is down to the discretion of the specific course/expedition leader. If you have any queries about this, please get in contact.
