Young People / Family Courses

Backcountry Survival Ltd can offer young people and families courses that encourages boundaries to be pushed, that enable personal development in knowledge as well as various other areas such as team-work, confidence and self-esteem.  A strengthened understanding of the outdoors and how to treat it will be gained. The training provided in Bushcraft and Survival allows people to work in and enjoy the outdoors, which we believe encourages a positive mindset. This can all happen whilst enjoying a great family day out as well.

It is our mission to encourage and develop people in the experiences and opportunities we provide through Bushcraft and Survival Training.
