Main Text Box for Descriptions, not short description
This course is conducted in an expedition style field camp with either (depending on venue) limited or no public amenities. A screened trench latrine and gravity fed canvas bush shower in a secluded private spot, along with strict camp hygiene measures will give a natural wilderness expedition feel to your experience as well as teaching you essential outdoor toilet etiquette and how to leave no trace. You will be taught how to wash with limited water and stay clean in the bush. Our measures are low-impact and environmentally friendly.
The 3 Day Module 1 Bushcraft Survival Course is run at our NSW, Victoria and NT locations, and is conducted in natural surroundings from an outdoor expedition style base camp. The outdoor campfire classroom provides an enlightening immersion into nature, helping our students to re-connect with the natural world on their journey to becoming more self-reliant. The outdoor setting provides a wonderful wilderness experience.
All course locations have parking available and are ‘reasonably’ accessible via public transport.
