Wilderness Living Four-Day Course

During this course we will start to explore beyond immediate survival. You will be learning more in-depth skills to make your survival experience more sustainable. Various different (More comfortable) shelters will be covered as well as many more ways to provide food and other natural resources. This course does require you to have a basic knowledge of the four basic needs, so you will have to have attended the weekend course or demonstrate your knowledge gained by self-study or through the attendance of another school.
Skills covered include: (But are not limited to) cord-making, basketry, advanced shelter, tracking, nature awareness, fishing tools, pottery, trapping, use of tools, etc. We will serve you lunch in the form of bread, butter, ham, cheese, jams and other spreads. Fresh fruit will also be available. We will make sure there are plenty of hot and cold drinks available for you throughout the day.
In the evenings we will cook a variety of delicious meals on the fire.
The course is taught on our specialized course-site where there is plenty of shelter to work in if the weather is bad. The site is about 10 minutes walk away from the car-park, and there may be some muddy areas on the trail to the camp. This course does not require you to have a lot of equipment available, but below is a list:

Sharp knife (2" to 5" blade preferably non-folding but if it's a folding knife it has to be lockable!) If you do not have a knife, we would suggest you borrow one from us during the course rather then purchase one as we will explain different knife-types and their benefits during the course.
Plate, drinking-mug and spreading-knife
Warm clothing
Appropriate shoes
Rain gear
Notebook and different color pens
Leather gardening gloves
Sleeping bag and mat
Poncho, tarpaulin or tent (There are sleeping spaces available, but bringing your own gives you more options)
Spare space in your pack to take things home with you.


Some snack food (IE: travel-mix, dried fruits, chocolate)
