Year in review

We've had a great year and would like to thank all the participants on our courses. We had to add more 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 the spring with the other tracker courses.
This year's shows have been excellent and we've added the same venues to our calendar for next year. This has additionally included the main Scouting events; Gilwell 24 and Gilwell reunion. 
We've also completed a number of talks to wildlife organisations and a cub group.

Diploma Registration

We are now taking registrations for our 2015 intake of Diploma students. We already have 6 people on the programme.
This year we have only 4 places! So please get your registrations in as soon as possible.
The Diploma gives you a structured learning platform for cradle-to-grave knowledge about Bushcraft, Tracking and the Natural History. Many other aspects of outdoor living are also covered such as food preparation and cooking; natural navigation, astronomy, camp craft, survival, climate, environments. 
Of course you don't have to use the programme to study. You can just take advantage of the fact you get all your courses paid for a whole year. You can attend as many as you want, even attend the same course twice.
Have a look at our Diploma page.

Tracking Fundementals

Following the success of our one-day tracking fundamental course, we have decided to run some more courses next year.
This course recognises that not everyone can come out for a full weekend; so it will mirror the first day of the Immersion Course.
The course will raise your awareness of nature and you will be introduced to the art of tracking. You will be looking at the fundementals of tracking, compression shapes, feeding signs, scat, hairs and you will start to put together a picture of what's happening in the Forest even though you weren't there to see it.
The course costs only £95 per person.

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, participants, assistants, 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 and all the best for the New Year.
