After a creative day of training and guidance, you will be prepared with relevant and required education. Enough to be responsible for you own personal well being for an over night in the woods. Camping away from the communal teaching area, for a more secluded experience.

Our instructors will be there throughout the day, offering guidance and support. Checking to see if all shelters are safe, waterproof & adequate.

The level of difficultly is up to you. If you would like to challenge yourselves throughout the experience, you are encouraged to create natural shelters. This gives a more for-filling survival experience, having created a shelter using what nature provides.

If you wish to work less on shelter building, you may choose create shelters using tarps (tarps provided) hammocks & bashas also available on request, if you wish to sleep off the forest floor. 

British weather can be unpredictable and unexpected rainfall may result in testing personal abilities. However, survival skills when applied efficiently make a positive difference.

When the sun sets, instructors will be on site but out of site. Your personal health & safety is in your own hands.

You may spend the evening how you please, sitting by the fire light (Nature's TV). Take a walk to explore woods or venture to nearby fields for moon watching and star gazing. The evening is what you make of it! 

Further training continues after breakfast, next morning.

This entire camp is self catered. Please bring enough food and snacks for the duration of your stay. An optional breakfast is provided for an extra fee, unless you wish to fully cater for yourself.
