DETAILS:

For adults only 18+. Guaranteed to bring out your wild side. This is no "Glamping" experience or walk in the park. Our courses/camps teach bushcraft & wilderness skills, encourage resilience & provide the opportunity to camp independently in the woods - to test personal abilities whatever the weather. Most public overnight courses take place in wild-like private bluebell woodland in Sevenoaks, Kent. However, we also run private courses in sites based in Croydon & Buckinghamshire if you wish to organise a bushcraft woodland experience for a specific adult group.

Discover what nature can provide to survive. You will receive clear instructions & practical demonstrations of all bushcraft skills, followed by the opportunity to practise for yourself. After a day adopting wilderness skills & bushcraft knowledge. You'll be prepped to be responsible for your own well being overnight in the woods. In Autumn time in the woods, the forest gifts us with Sweet Chestnuts, berries, nuts & edible mushrooms. Winter courses test mental strength & resilience, although this is England so you are continuously adapting to the elements seasonally. Remember that survival skills have the ability to empower you, teach self-reliance & personal responsibility. Wild skills take time & practise to master; and it's never-ending learning curve with abundant knowledge to acquire. The mind can be your own worst enemy at times. 90% of survival is psychological.  

 

Discover different ways to create shelter and light a fire. Learn more about woodland ecology, discover useful trees, plants & fungi and how to apply leave no trace. Bushcraft can support you in traveling further, off the beaten track and with less stuff. You will have the opportunity to explore the woods, find your own patch and set up your personal camp.

The level of difficulty is yours to choose, don't expect a military style scenario. Constructing natural shelters gives a more rewarding experience though it requires manual labour and consumes energy. However, don't underestimate personal capabilities as humans are amazingly adaptable creatures.

Wildeye instructors will support you during the experience, share knowledge & offer guidance. However, at sunset you'll be left alone to camp independently in the woods. Staff will remain in the woods - just a short walk away - but be out of sight until the next morning. The sound of a flute will summon you to breakfast. Further training, pack down & leave no trace before departure.

Leave our courses feeling inspired to learn more. Having adopted valuable knowledge & skills that give you the ability to be a responsible camper and confident explorer.

"WILDERNESS SKILLS HAVE THE ABILITY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE OR THE LIFE OF A COMPANION"

Wilderness Skills

Instructors are based in the woods throughout the entire experience. Ask as many questions, or call for assistance when required. We all love sharing knowledge of the wild & offering support. If you would like to challenge yourselves throughout the experience, you're encouraged to create natural shelters. This gives a more for-filling experience having created a shelter using what nature provides. If you wish to work less on shelters, use the provided tarps & hammocks are also available.

British weather can be unpredictable & unexpected rainfall may result in testing resilience. However, survival skills when applied efficiently can create positive outcomes. We believe that

The evening is your free time. Relax by your fire light (Nature's TV). Explore woods or venture to nearby fields for moon & star gazing. Further training commences after breakfast the next morning.

Please bring enough food for the duration of your stay, you might get peckish whilst shelter building, bring back-up snacks & fruit. Breakfast is provided for & the sound of the flute will summon you to breakfast.

 

Drinking water is available on camp, please bring a refillable water bottle along. Hot water is provided for teas & coffee.

This experience gives individuals the opportunity to spend time in the woods either solo, with a partner or friends/family left in solitude overnight.
