Specialists in outdoor wilderness survival courses

One Day & Bespoke Courses

A hen do with a difference!In between our scheduled courses we can also organise and run corporate team building days for large groups, stag/hen weekends with a bushcrafty theme, subject specific training courses for groups and private day courses focusing on a particular skill or technique such as fire lighting by friction, foraging wild plants for food and medicine, wild game preparation and back country cooking, survival trapping and tracking, stalking and camouflage, carving a spoon with axe and knife, basket weaving using locally found materials; the list is pretty extensive.  Have a quick browse at our testimonial page to see what other folk got up to during their time with us.

'The guys at Wilderness Survival Skills are great, and we always love having them at our River Cottage events. Spending time with them is a fantastic way to learn new outdoor skills and discover more about the living environment around you. You'll be having such a good time you'll barely notice.  They are brilliant with children as well as adults -  my son Oscar had his 10th birthday party in the woods with his friends, doing bushcraft led by Joe and Glenn, and it was a huge hit - 'one of the best days ever' he said.  We joined them for a good part of the day and had a pretty fine time ourselves!'

Just a note to say thankyou SO much for putting on such a good show.

We all enjoyed ourselves immensely.  When we got back to the house you could tell that everyone felt like they'd achieved something special and there was a great atmosphere. I hope you all have a cracking Christmas and New Year. Please thank the boys for us.

'As best man, it was at first daunting to organise a decent weekend for a group of guys but Joe at Wilderness Survival was a huge help in the planning of the weekend, tailoring it to our needs and being flexible to include some additonal stag fun...and making some great suggestions and planning out a weekend we all had a great time on.  Our two instructors were very easy going, clear and did a great job adding to the fun we were having.  We learned a huge amount of interesting stuff over the weekend and feel confident that if nuclear war ever breaks out we'll be ready to survive off the land!.

Cracking work guys, would recommend this as a stag or hen do or anyone wanting to get to know the outdoors a bit more.'
