Course Dates 2017

Our 2017 dates are here!
As you know all of our courses are popular so you are encouraged to book up sooner rather than later. View all courses on our Course List page on the website. We also have an events and calendar page.

2016 - Blink and you missed it! 

We've had a fabulous year comprised of inspiration, learning and friendships and would like to welcome all the participants who came on our courses to our bushcraft family. Again like last year we had more people wanting to start their bushcraft journey and as a result added additional dates for our ever popular, sell-out Wilderness Immersion Course in the Autumn. If you missed this course, don't worry, we're running another in spring 2017 in conjunction with the signature tracker courses.
This year's shows have been excellent. Next year we're back on centre stage at the Bushcraft Show in Derbyshire.
If you would like to book us for your event. talk or presentation please contact us at


Diploma Registration 2017

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!! We are now inviting registrations for our 2017 intake of Diploma students. 
This year we are limiting places to ensure we get people that are fully committed, keen to learn and ready to start their bushcraft JOURNEY.  Don't miss out! Register your interest now to ensure your application can be considered. 
The Diploma gives you a safe, structured learning platform to grow knowledge of Bushcraft, Tracking and Natural History but it also helps you learn about you, the impact you have on the forest, how you operate within a team and how you strive to achieve the best results within this field.  Many other aspects of outdoor living are also covered such as food preparation and cooking; natural navigation, astronomy, camp craft, survival, climate and environments. 
Of course you don't have to use the programme to study. You can just take advantage of the fact you get unlimited FREE courses for 12 months. You can attend as many as you want, even attend the same course twice.
Have a look at our Diploma page.

Forest Life Immersion

Would you like to combine tracking / bushcraft course with a relaxing holiday in France?
We are inviting you to join us for a week long Forest Immersion Course in the summer of 2017 and an optional second week retreat opportunity in conjunction with RiverLife Massage at our woodland in the Millevache Nature Park in the Limousin region of France. If you can't make two weeks you can combine the two. Go here for further details...

Tracker Courses

Tracking courses are getting more popular. It's not just the footprints and other sign on the ground. It's about a woodland mindfulness, and an awareness and appreciation of nature that puts you in touch with your sourroundings in a woodland or forest environment.
If you want this deeper understanding with nature, we recommend the Wilderness Immersion course to start you on your J.O.U.R.N.E.Y.

That time of Year!

No self-respecting newsletter issued at this time of year wouldn't include a mention about seasonal festivities and we would like to wish all our contacts, staff, participants, camp helpers, mentors and everyone who has assisted us over the last year all the very best for the season.
We hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful seasonal break. We will see you in the New Year.
