Our Survival skills & Wild camping experience takes place on remote privately owned land within the Brecon Beacons National park. You can book either a half day or full day survival skills in conjunction with our overnight wild camping.
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.
Using a variety of techniques you will learn how to make your own comfortable natural shelter, how to light and manage a fire, how to arrange a fire for cooking and many other expedition skills.
Survival skills typically include:
*Emergency Shelter Building
*Friction Fire and other methods
*Finding and purifying water
Overnight Wild Camping
Our overnight wild camping can be booked in conjunction with either a half day or full day Survival Skills. Once the camp has been set for the evening you will take part in our wilderness cooking experience which typically involves gutting your own fish, baking your own bread and preparing vegetables for your evening meal. We also provide supplies for a cooked breakfast, Tea and coffee and orange juice the following morinig.
For group sizes of 9 or less we have a site where we provide Hammock & Tarp camping. For larger size groups we use a different site where you will build ground level shelters.
*Experienced Bushcraft Instructor
*Materials for shelter building
*Cooking equipment /Seasoned Firewood
* Evening Meal
… you will also need to bring along your own sleeping bag.
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.
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.
For our ultimate weekend of real adventure combine this experience with our popular Gorge Scrambling activity.
