Based at stunning locations in the Yorkshire Pennines and Cumbria. We offer courses that will show you new skills and give you the knowledge and confidence to go into the outdoors and not only survive but thrive. All our courses are practical, safe and fun.
They are suitable for individuals, families or groups. Whether you're a single parent looking for new ideas that don't involve being on-line, a grandparent who wants to wow the grandkids with your firelighting skills or just someone who's watched TV survival 'experts' and wants to learn how they do it. Then we have a course to suit you.
We have run a number of groups for young people that are fun and informative. Safety and inclusion are paramount. We can cater for special needs groups with leaders. Just tell us your requirements and we will do our best to meet your needs and give your group an enjoyable experience.
