Ever wished you could learn and practice Bushcraft and Wilderness Survival Skills - in a relaxed female group?

Well, I’ve put together an exclusive women-only course that allows you to do just that and no previous experience is required. 

Survival Lessons
From my own experiences - and listening to your needs - it’s clear you want something where you can learn Bushcraft and Wilderness Survival skills in a RELAXED atmosphere.

 So now I’m going to run a totally UNIQUE - weekend survival course - developed for those of you who want to learn Bushcraft in the company of other women.

On this ground-breaking course - you’ll be shown vital wilderness survival skills - at a relaxed pace - in an exclusive all woman group with lots of hands on experience.

During the course you will discover: 

  • Four Priorities: Learn what they are and how important they are in any survival situation.

  • The ideal type of fire to build: We’ll show you a quick and easy way to build a fire that’s simple to light -- easy to keep going -- and burns nice and hot. This is an essential skill to learn. 

  • A quick and easy way to light a roaring fire… WITHOUT matches or a lighter: Just by using a special pocket size fire lighting “tool” -- you’ll never have to worry about losing a gas lighter -- or trying to use damp soggy matches -- EVER again. We’ll show you what this tool is -- and more importantly -- HOW to use it. It’s so simple to use -- even when the tool is WET. 

  • 3 ways to build a “debris” shelter that’ll keep you warm… dry: Once you know these 3 simple survival shelters - you’ll be able to adapt them for use in many situations.

  • Finding Water In WoodsWhere to FIND water… even when the ground’s as dry-as-a-bone You’ll be shown how to gather water -- even if you can’t find any rivers, streams or pools nearby. 

  • How to move easily through woodland… as SILENTLY as a Fox. Moving around silently is a good skill to learn. You’ll quickly and easily learn how to do it - so you can get closer to animals and humans. 

  • How to make string and cords from the prickliest and stingiest plants in the forest. Using plant fibres -- you can make good strong cords and string to tie things together. This’ll come in very handy for all sorts of things around the camp. 

  • Cook On An Open Fire: Meals and hot water for drinks - will be cooked on an open fire in the centre of the camp. This is a great opportunity for to learn about - and become comfortable with - open fires. They’ll learn how to tend the fire and respect what it can do if it’s used properly. 

  • Algae FungiConcentric Rings: Experience how all wildlife is connected. 

  • Identify Plants and Trees: An essential survival skill, you’ll learn about the various plants and trees around you - and how to use them. For instance: One common tree has leaves that contain a natural soap. Very handy for washing your hands after building your shelter! You’ll discover what this tree is and learn about many other plant uses on a plant walk seeing the plants in their natural habitat. 

  • Nature Awareness & the Sit Spot: Using our innate senses to connect with the stillness of nature and let wildlife come close to you.

other people who’ve enjoyed their time with us. 

But don’t take my word for it --

here’s what others have to say about our courses:

"Part of the reasoning of choosing this particular course was the lack of men! Don't get me wrong I don't dislike them, but felt like I would accomplished more within an all female environment. Meeting all the women instructors was really inspiring, certainly the whole course was food for the soul. I now feel that when I go camping in the future, I can take less and enjoy more - making better use of my natural surroundings."
Maggie Johns - Kent

“I just wanted to say thank you for the weekend, we enjoyed it very much.

And has reminded us we need to think less about work and take more notice of being in the present and seeing what is going on around us in the natural world, its the only way to stop being governed by time and too really live!”

Rachel  – UK 

“The course was as wonderful as I expected but in a completely different way. We learnt a huge amount and I am still surprised at how much I retained of what was often a very challenging agenda.

Meeting all the women instructors was really inspiring, certainly the whole course was food for the soul. I now feel that when I go camping in the future, I can take less and enjoy more...”

Lesley – Kent 

“I think although it was short the course has had quite far reaching effects – certainly opened my mind to some good stuff and started healing the disconnection I hadn't noticed I was feeling from nature. I’d like to do another some time...”

Best wishes, Bec
