Survival Skills & Wild Camping

Our Survival Skills experience and overnight wild camping takes place on privately owned woodland in the Brecon Beacons National park. This is a beautiful location with a flowing stream nearby.

On arrival your group will set up a Parachute canopy that will act as shelter and base for your stay. You will be taught essential survival skills that will enable you to create a functioning expedition camp.

If you are staying overnight one of your challenges will be to build a suitable shelter to sleep under. Tarpaulin sheets & basic equipment will be supplied for shelter construction. Participants are also welcome to bring their own tents or hire from us. 

Survival skills typically include:
*Emergency Shelter Building
*Friction Fire and other methods
*Finding and purifying water
*Navigation
*Wilderness cooking- gutting your own fish and making bannock bread for your evening meal

You can book either a half day or full day survival skills in conjunction with our overnight wild camping.

Open Events
To arrange a booking we require a minimum group size of four, if you do not have a minimum group size you are welcome to join one of our open events.

Stag Groups
Once the camp has been set for the evening many stag groups prefer their own privacy and the Instructor will leave the site and camp nearby.  You will be provided with sufficient supplies i.e. firewood, food & breakfast the next day. For groups with any under 18’s an Instructor will always be on site overnight.
