Bushcraft Essentials is for those who wish to learn as much as possible in the shortest possible time. The emphasis is very much on practical application rather than theory. In return for applying yourself, you will gain a skill-set which is extremely enabling.
In designing this course we asked ourselves the following:
- Which of the bushcraft skills are most important?
- Which skills, in reality, do we use the most?
- Which bushcraft skills are essential for travel in wild and remote areas?
- Which skills do we want you to go away with and be able to apply?
What we came up with was an amazing wish-list of wilderness bushcraft skills.
