  • Handle and use axes, knives and saws
  • Light a fire by traditional methods – no lighters or matches required

  • Prepare the bounty that you’ve foraged from the wild
  • Cook and even bake over an open fire
  • Build different kind of shelters
  • Purify your own water

Courses can be adapted for groups, team building events and schools.
