These courses are designed for corporates / companies wishing to escape an office environment and spend time in woodlands, taking part survival team building activities.
Turn your team into a tribe.
You will be trained in various bushcraft & survival skills and put them into practice either working as a team or independently. Participants will create shelter (either natural shelters or using tarps) practise different fire making techniques and work together to create a camp.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
For companies or organisations wishing to challenge a team in a woodland environment using survival skills.
Survival is about mental strength, problem solving, creativity and becoming self-reliant. Engaging with the natural environment and using what nature provides to survive.
A day in the woods learning survival skills will bring any team closer together. We adapt our courses to suit individual clients and group needs.
We work in a 23acre ancient woodland site based in Brasted Chart in Sevenoaks in Kent and a family owned campsite in Hertfordshire. We also work in a woodland scout camp based in Dulwich if you wish to remain closer to London.
Timings are flexible. Half days and Full days courses available. Please enquire with your specific needs.

FULL DAY IN THE WOODS
A full day in the woods allows a group or team to spend more time building relationships. Using problem solving abilities, communication and putting intuitive abilities in action. A full day in the woods allows individuals toward together to create a natural shelter, using what nature provides.
Learn to let go of the everyday gadgets we survive with in city life and tune into the natural world.
Depending on group requirements and dynamics, we may add a competitive element to the outdoor activities.
We work in two main sites. One is a 23acre privately owned woodland space in Brasted Chart in Sevenoaks, Kent. This environment is wild-like woods and there are no toilets available, so be prepared to go back to the basics and think like a wild cat.
Our other site is based in Sarratt, Hertfordshire. Here is more open space, fields surrounded by countryside with bunches of trees for conducting bushcraft activities. On this particular site there are toilets and electricity points available, with a small public woodland next door to venture to.
If you have a particular outdoor/woodland space in which we can travel to, we are always happy to collaborate and visit different land spaces or woodland locations to conduct team building & outdoor activities.
Please contact us with any enquiries or potential dates in mind to organise a team building activities with us.
