Bushcraft Experience



Cooking homemade Pizza's over an open fire


Get back to nature

Bushcraft is a collection of skills and knowledge to help you survive in the natural environment. Share a new experience, join us in the woods and learn about the key elements of survival - shelter, warmth, food and drink.
We'll show you how to make a fire using the traditional method of flint and steel. You'll discover the best spots for constructing a shelter from natural materials and how to keep out the elements. You'll cook something over your fire such as - pizzas, sweetbread or donuts. We'll show you how to forage for food (season dependent) and boil water to make a cup of natural herbal tea.

We run Bushcraft in the Lake District from our base near Grizebeck and also around Coniston and Windermere. You can spend a half day doing Bushcraft or combine it with a Canoe journey stopping off along the way to learn some new skills.

Suitable for children and families.

Allow up to 3 hrs.
