Bushcraft Courses

Looking for Bushcraft courses? Join New Forest Activities for a fantastic introduction to the world of Bushcraft, based in the heart of the New Forest National Park.

You’ll enjoy a full day at our woodland base learning fundamental bushcraft skills and practices. The day’s events will depend on weather conditions and the experience of the group, but will usually cover such things as fire lighting, shelter building, foraging, species identification and sharpes/knife work.

You’ll also get to prepare and cook a tasty vegetable stew for lunch; not before building the fire to cook it on of course!

You’ll have a brilliant time with us, learning new skills in a wonderful New Forest setting. Plus, we’ll equip you with all the knowledge that you’ll need so that you’re able to continue to practice and grow your skills after your day with us.
