Real Wild Camp Skills (Suitable for D of E Training)

 

A superb fun course with loads of interesting detail. The course aim is to create nature aware campers with exceptional camp craft skills .  To acheive this we teach a slightly broader range of practical topics in a creative way to create the complete camper. The result is hopefully a youth that develop a long lasting and responsible attitude to our wild areas. The inclusion of a little more information than the regular outdoor camp course can make all the difference,
 

Duration - 3hrs or 6hrs (Depending on what detail and content you require - Also available is the 2 Day Adventure Hike which is excelent as a training expedition)

Suitable For - Especially for School groups who are looking to undertake Duke of Edinburgh - No level of expertise is required , just a keeness to learn. We will do a fair bit of walking on rough ground.

Location - Second to none, we are set in a remote but accessible part of Perthshire. It has a truly wild feel - no pretend stuff here. View our Location.  We can also come to you.

Equipment - All supplied but its a good idea to bring your tent along.
