Description

This weekend long course I've specifically designed for those people who want to make the first steps into bushcraft. The skills and knowledge that can be applied in the field are, in short, vast. What I've done with this weekend course is laid out the practical skills that get used, day in day out, when wild camping in the temperate woodland. You'll leave the course knowing you can set up your camp, light a fire and make yourself at home in the woods. Where you go from there is up to you. -Jamie Dakota
