This course is an introduction to the world of Bushcraft, Survival and Wilderness Living.

You’ll gain a good understanding of the basic skills required to help you survive in the wilderness, but it will be down to you to practice.

This course is intended for those who wish to test themselves a little bit, by doing their own game preparation and sleeping in shelters built by their own hands.

Sounds easy, but how would you manage?

    From start to finish which came all to soon the weekend was full of well instructed aspects of bushcraft and survival techniques. Ray has a wealth of knowledge and experience which he passed on to us in a very easy to understand and practical manor.
    Thanks Ray for a great couple of days

    Had a fantastic weekend improving and learning some new bushcraft and survival skills in the wild with a great bunch.
    Great to push the boundaries of what you can do and achieve in the woods.
    Just wish the weekend lasted longer.

    Many thanks to Ray (and Andy) for organizing an unforgettable 2 Day Bushcraft, Wilderness & Survival Course. Really friendly and professional, well organized and prepared. Ray took great care to explain everything to our group, adapting to the needs of everyone from adults down to our young and enthusiastic teenagers (and there never ending stream of questions). Ray was the ultimate host, professional, knowledgeable and led us by example on respect for our natural environment. We learned so much in such a short space of time. Thanks again to Ray.

    A group of 12 of us, adults and children, spent Sunday with Ray in Thetford Forest learning about making fires safely, knife skills, trapping etc and it was truly fab. Ray was informative, patient and held the children’s attention for the duration…and the adults too! We even learned how to gut our own fish and cook it on the camp fire. It was excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. The children had a fantastic time and it was well worth it. Thank you Ray.

    I wanted to highlight what a great weekend myself and the other teachers had attending the level 2 bushcraft course. Thank you to Ray and Dave for their hospitality and sharing of knowledge. They worked tirelessly to keep the camp up and running, deliver the sessions, prepare the food, keep the fire going and all with a smile. I highly recommend any activity with the level of coaching and outstanding service received. Thanks again and we will all be returning very soon!!

    What an absolutely brilliant weekend I had at High Lodge. Ray and Dave are very dedicated, knowledgeable and professional guys who have taught me an absolute ton of stuff. Not just about survival and being able to let nature help you, but in many other ways too.
    Would I do this again.. YES.
    Did I really enjoy it … YES
    I also had the luck of meeting some people who were a great bunch.
    Ray… Dave… I salute you both. I thank you both sincerely for making the weekend great.
