Have fun in the great outdoors and learn new skills when you try bushcraft in Shropshire or Guildford! These one and two-day courses are hosted and run by highly experienced military veterans. They’ll teach you all about the essential bushcraft and survival skills in the woodlands around Buildwas in the heart of Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge or Worplesdon near Guildford.
This team is super passionate about the outdoors. Many of the members are ex-frontline military and special forces having served all over the world. But their favourite missions of all are in the lush woods of Shropshire and Guildford. As the guys themselves say their mission is to ‘reconnect with nature and have a good time whilst learning some important lifelong skills’.
And that’s just what you’ll be doing on these fab courses. You’ll have the chance to leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind for a day or two and get back to real basics. If you want to survive in the wilds it’s shelter water and food that are top of the list. So you’ll spend time doing things like building a bivvy learning how to purify water lighting a camp fire and even preparing your fresh fish for supper.
A series of hands-on teaching group exercises and challenges means that all important sense of camaraderie is there right from the start as you all get stuck in. This is the sort of activity where you’ll learn lots laugh lots make new buddies and generally just open your eyes to a whole new world which takes a jaunt in the countryside to a whole new level.
Indeed if you really want to immerse yourself in survival skills for a weekend in Shropshire or Guildford with a difference we highly recommend the two-day course. You get to spend a night under the stars with some brill extra activities including night navigation (if conditions are right) orienteering and of course making breakfast in the morning. And we have to say nothing beats a brekkie cooked on the open fire. Enjoy it out there!
