Introduction to Bushcraft Course

For the beginner 'bushcrafter' or the intermediate adventurer, on this two day / one night bushcraft course we will take you on a discovery journey, through those main skills you need to be able to fend for yourself when you are in the wild or just to make wild camping trips easier.
