* Family Bushcraft

It can seem as though every aspect of modern life is conspiring to pull the family apart. This two night course offers you the chance to be a family in the old way, exploring the joys and secrets of nature together.



* Family Wildlife Walkabout

Time is a rare and precious commodity in modern life and sharing wonderful experiences as a family is one of life's essentials. What better way to do it than enjoying the diversity of British wildlife together as you are guided through the beautiful and ancient woodlands of Sussex by those who know them best. Get away from the normal hustle and bustle and let your senses tune in to the sights and sounds of the forest.



Modern life, we are often told, conspires to pull the family apart. Our family bushcraft courses offer you the chance to be a real family unit. They offer the fun of camping but with the added bonus of discovering nature and experiencing bushcraft together in a stimulating and safe environment.

Making a campfire, shelter building, tree and plant recognition, campfire games and stories, watching some of the stars of British wildlife and learning to recognise their tracks are just some of the highlights of these wonderful family adventures.

These courses are conducted from an expedition style camp in East Sussex and are self-catering. Please bring enough food for the duration and a stove to cook it on.



It is our firm belief that Wilderness Bushcraft has something of value to give to everyone. Hopefully this is reflected in our programme of bushcraft courses and educational Wilderness Bushcraft Survival courses that have evolved over the thirty years we have been operating.

At Woodlore, bushcraft course development is a never-ending process as we endeavour to bring the subject to a wider range of students. The skills and knowledge gained through Ray Mears bushcraft is extended and enhanced by tapping into the wilderness survival skills developed by many indigenous peoples and other experts in the bushcraft survival course field, including Lars Fält, Brian Desmond and many others.
