We have collated some of the best bushcraft training sites in the country.
Our East Sussex site is perfect for school camps, teacher training and SMT development days, education-based conferences plus larger gatherings. It is set amongst beautiful woodland and fields and is an ideal location for a host of activities.
It boasts excellent facilities to ensure a comfortable stay. These include camping pitches with their own fire pits, yurts, mini-yurts and a giant tepee. There is a marquee for indoor training or education. Plus excellent wash rooms, showers and toilets. For those with limited mobility or special needs access can be arranged.

Our West Sussex site is just 20 minutes from Brighton and is used for much of our “Survival Academy” training. It has a rugged edge to it that allows students to feel like they are a little more remote than they really are. The students build and sleep out in their own wild shelters and learn to fend for themselves outdoors for the entire duration of a course.
For those joining courses at an introductory level or in extreme weather conditions we also have excellent kitchen and bunkhouse facilities available.

Our Cornwall site offers some of the most stunning camping opportunities available in the UK: in beautiful woodland and close to the water’s edge and Cornwall’s dramatic coast line. There is also the option of a spacious, fully fitted bunk house for when weather conditions are bad.
This site is ideal for a range of school camps and survival courses. It is used for our Sea Kayak Survival Expeditions.

We have three sites that are ideally situated for activities in and around the Snowdonia National Park. In the shadow of Mount Snowdon, one is an “off grid bunkhouse” that allows students to really know what it feels like to live without many standard comforts that they may be used to at home.
Our other two sites offer similar facilities but with all modern conveniences. Nestled in the shadows of Mount Snowdon, each of our sites is set within incredible scenery. They all have direct access to some of the best walks in Wales to get us out into the wild where the action really is.

Our Hampshire site boasts over 1000 acres of ancient woodland and meadows. It is a magical place that allows us to really show what nature has to offer for food and other important resources.
The site offers an opportunity for wild camping and is ideal for smaller school camps and survival courses. It’s also perfect for more rustic team building days and events for SMT and school staff.

Our Scottish courses take place along the coast near Fort William, one of the wildest environments in the UK. Our survival courses here can include wild camping, navigation training and coastal foraging exercises. Students truly get to test their survival skills usually developed with us on previous courses.
They finish with supreme confidence in the skills they have developed. In addition they gain a desire and ability to become great leaders at school and in the community.
