What is Bushcraft ?
Bushcraft is having the knowledge to be able to use natural materials to live comfortably.
In Bushcraft there are no set ways of achieving an outcome, what works in one situation may not work in another therefore there is no set way of doing things, meaning lots of different ways will produce the end result.
Our courses show various ways to get this end result then it is upto you to choose the best for you, whether that is setting up a tarp, lighting a fire or carving a tent peg.
Bushcraft by canoe courses offer the chance to paddle an Open Canoe and look at the options for setting up an overnight camp, how to prepare a fire, set up pot hanger systems and get that ever important brew on the boil - plus much more.
