Bushcraft Skills at Forest of Dean Adventure

Bushcraft Skills for effective team building

Have you got what it takes to do without home comforts and live in the wild? Can you successfully work as a team to keep warm, dry and fed? An ideal team-building activity for groups of up to eight participants, this course is designed to engender greater support, cooperation and encouragement between team members to achieve goals.

What the course involves

During this one-day course, you’ll spend the day in the woods acquiring the basic skills needed to not only survive but thrive in the outdoors. Learn how to light a fire using a variety of techniques and materials and how to make different types of shelters. Then put your new knowledge into action as you explore the woods looking for natural resources that will be useful for survival – the ultimate challenge is to make a fire on which to cook your own lunch and make a hot drink.

As well as learning new skills, our bushcraft course is also about making the most of the wild and enjoying being in the great outdoors.

Safe use of bushcraft knives will be demonstrated and practised under supervision of your instructor.

"What an amazing place!
Signed my 9 year old daughter up to do the assault course and adventure challenge (I'm a big baby with heights!). Both were lead by Mark, who is a fabulous instructor! Very encouraging and funny. We were lucky that on both activities, the other participants and their families were great fun too, which really made the experience even better.
Excellent value for money - will definitely be back hopefully a little taller to get past that first hanging ball!"
