Bushcraft Courses

Category: Junior


* Junior Fundamental Bushcraft

The main aim of this course is to encourage youngsters to live in natural surroundings comfortably and with confidence. Above all we aim for students of this course to have fun while they are learning basic Bushcraft skills.



* Junior Expedition Skills

The aim of the Junior Expedition Skills course is for budding young Bushcrafters to take their skills and knowledge further, giving them the tools to be competent and confident in the great outdoors.



Our junior bushcraft survival courses are aimed at adventurous youngsters not yet old enough to attend an adult course. Junior Fundamental courses for the 11-16 age group expose budding young Bushcrafters to the wonders of nature for a week without a parent or games console in sight.

Junior Expedition Skills courses designed for 14-17 year-olds take those skills and knowledge further, giving them the tools to be competent and confident in the great outdoors.

The number of students on any junior bushcraft course will not exceed 16 and there is a purposeful low student: staff ratio of no more than 4:1.



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.
