Take to the woods for a day's bushcraft and survival training, with ex-special forces instructors.
- Shropshire (Shropshire)
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
This one-day course, in Shropshire, will teach you the fundamentals of bushcraft and survival. Learn useful - potentially life-saving - skills in the company of ex-military special forces veterans, and gain a new appreciation for nature's bounty.
The experience takes place in the remote 'wilderness' of the
Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You'll be met
by your instructors at the woodland headquarters, where you'll be
introduced to the rest of the group and given a full safety
briefing. The day's itinerary will cover a variety of outdoor
techniques - from lighting a fire without matches, to building a
protective shelter. You'll explore the psychology of survival,
learn to purify drinking water, and cook wild game and fish. Though
many of your instructors are former soldiers, this isn't a military
boot camp! The emphasis is on having fun, and team building
activities will ensure everyone's kept in high spirits throughout
The 1-Day Bushcraft and Survival Course, in Shropshire, is a great day out for keen outdoorsmen and women. An Experience Days voucher makes a unique gift for your family's budding Ray Mears!
