Overnight bushcraft and wild camping course…

June 15 2019 – Middle Spernal, Warwickshire

THE next Wild Parkin bushcraft course will be the overnighter here in Warwickshire, aimed at beginners and people who are new to the outdoors.

You’ll be learning the full spectrum of buschcraft basics from foraging edible plants and understanding the principles of survival in the wild to building shelters and lighting fires.

By the end of this course you’ll know the difference between King Alfred’s Cakes and bannock bread as you learn how to track prey, make fire, find clean water and a host of other outdoor skills.

At the end of the day there’ll be some fun and feasting around the campfire as you prepare to settle down for a night under the stars in wonderful Warwickshire woodland.

The course is run in conjunction with woodland charity The Heart of England Forest, and you’ll be under the tutorship of Darren Parkin – Head of Directing Staff at Wild Parkin. Darren has four decades of experience in instructing bushcraft, survival and outdoors.

What will you need: Sturdy outdoor clothing, a knife, sleeping bag (tarp or tent too, if you don’t fancy sleeping in your hand-made shelter), lunch snack, large bottle of water, and, if you wish, your own evening drinks to enjoy round the campfire while we rustle up supper using some of the plants you foraged in the day.
