Bushcraft 3-Day

What is bushcraft?
It's not witchcraft, and it's not "arts and crafts".
Bushcraft is a term for the outdoor skills and heritage skills that people have use for centuries. It's basic components are familiar enough. Fire making and shelter building are part of the skill set. So are foraging and water procurement. But the whole point of the bushcraft mindset is a little bit different from the typical mentality of wilderness survival.

In wilderness survival, you learn and practice skills that will keep you alive during an emergency in the wilderness.
But in bushcraft, you'll develop and use skills that aren't just helping you survive - they are helping you to thrive!

In short, bushcraft isn't just about avoiding death in the wilderness, it's about going into the wild to really live. Bushcraft is the art of thriving in your native environment - the great outdoors.

In this exciting new class, you'll:

Learn to build long term wilderness shelters
Discover the secrets of Flint & Steel fire making
Learn how to SUPER HEAT a campfire to do primitive forging techniques (you'll make your own steel knife!)
Make a sling and gain hands-on bow making skills (you'll make your own quickie survival bow)
Learn methods of lighting your camp with simple materials
Taste-test bush cooking techniques and gain the experience to do them yourself
Take a hike to study and collect edible, medicinal and useful plants
Test your skills - against yourself and against other students
And so much more!

This class is a 3 day format, immersing you fully in the realm of bushcraft. You'll stay over in a woodland shelter (or you can bring a tent), and you'll enjoy three days packed with hands-on skills.
Day one of the three day class is also avaible by itself as the Bushcraft Crash Course, and day two is available as a single day class Bushcraft Tools and Weapons
