Intermediate Wilderness Bushcraft (6 Days)
Move Your Skills Beyond Basic Bushcraft
Our Intermediate Wilderness Bushcraft course starts where most bushcraft courses finish. Extending and expanding on bushcraft fundamentals, this course will allow you to take your skills and knowledge to the next level and gain an increased understanding of bushcraft.
By introducing more advanced techniques and know-how, we replace a dependence on modern equipment with a significantly increased ability to rely on natural resources. As a result, this course will allow you to move towards living comfortably in the temperate woodland environment with the use of only minimal equipment.
Our aim is for you to become both more self-reliant and more confident in applying your bushcraft skills.
The Intermediate Wilderness Bushcraft course requires direct application of many key bushcraft skills and provides a fantastic experience of living close to nature. Through this experience you will gain a deeper understanding of, and respect for, the natural world and your place in it.
Having the ability to take advantage of the resources nature provides – and the experience of doing so – allows us to understand both the freedoms and limitations of being more directly dependent upon nature.
The Intermediate Wilderness Bushcraft course will provide you with the perspective to not take anything for granted, even when the going is good, and to be philosophical when life becomes more difficult.
Above all, you will see the value of knowledge, skill and a positive mental attitude. These are assets you can carry wherever you go and, ultimately, be entirely liberated by them.
What Our Clients Say About The Intermediate Wilderness Bushcraft Course:
"If anyone is hesitating about doing a course with Frontier Bushcraft I would wholeheartedly recommend it. Paul has that rare gift of combining superb knowledge with an easy going teaching ability." Gary Waidson.
"Cements all the knowledge that you learn in the Elementary course. The Intermediate course helps you to be more self reliant on oneself and not reliant on your kit. "Less is more" rule works here. Less kit and more knowledge I took home with me at the end of the course. Thank you Paul and everyone else's help." David Atreides.
"Thanks for a great week Paul." Ed Jones.
"Thanks again for the great course Paul, and to all the lads at Frontier. I couldn't recommend it highly enough." Ryan Assal.
"Thanks for a fantastic week in the woods Paul (and H and Spoons). Just about got my kit aired, washed, sorted & put away. Intermediate Wilderness Bushcraft was by far the hardest course I've done so far, but the most rewarding too I think. Lots to think about and practice now. Trying out things I've read about and seen on TV was an education in more than just the tasks in hand. If any one else out there is thinking about this signing up for this course next year, then go for it. You won't regret it!" Steve Bayley.
