Course Information

Bushcraft Week

We've combined a NEW CLASS and four days of our tried-and-true classes into a 5-day bushcraft experience! Are you up for the challange?


Day One - Let's build a bushcraft camp to actually use during the week! The first day of class is our NEW Bushcraft Shelters class.

Day Two and Three - Continue the momentum with our 2-day Bushcraft class, learning knot tying, knife craft, water procurement and much additional training.

Day Four - Now it's time to take your fire building skills to the next level with our Ultimate Fire Starting class.

Day Five - Complete the week with a day of campfire cooking and feasting - you'll have earned it! The final day is our Primitive Cooking class.


This 5 day program will give you a hands-on experience that you just can't mimic by reading or watching other people do these skills. You need to do these things for yourself to really understand them. 

For those who cannot make it to the whole week, there is the option to take days individually or smaller groupings (like taking the second and third day as our Bushcraft 2-day class).

Each member of this class will receive a copy of Advanced Survival Training's manuals on bushcraft. Camping and one evening lecture/project are also included in the 5-day package. Course tuition is $697.


The 2024 dates are:

December 2-6 (Monday thru Friday)
