Basic Bushcraft

Basic Bushcraft Classes

Understanding the wilderness around us can create an unparalleled advantage for the modern woodsmen. Having the knowledge to identify, craft, and functionally apply resources in a wilderness type setting is what the Basic Bushcraft Course focuses on. Making life in the wilderness less about equipment and more about the techniques to create a maintained and balanced living situation is essential to every woodsman. From crafting and development of woodland supplies to equipment alternatives and repair, students will gain a full understanding of a wilderness mindset as it relates to extended wilderness living and lifestyle.
