🔹 Water: finding and making water safe to drink.
🔹 Food: foraging for food and how to get calories and nutrients from the wild.
🔹 Prioritisation & risk mitigation: understand the mental and physical challenges of true survival situations and how to overcome them.
🔹 Equipment use, including survival knives and saws (provided for the course).
🔹 Expert training by Rich and the Fireside team.
🔹 Wonderful woodland location, shelter and campfire at the excellent Field725 camping between Frome and Bruton.
🔹 Free coffee & tea.
🔹 Camping pitches: free grass pitches (bring your own tent) are included, or you can upgrade to one of the other accommodation options on site (contact the campsite to book).
🔹 Glamping facilities: hot showers, flushing toilets, a kitchen area and beautiful views across rolling hills.
🔹 Note: food is not included so please bring your own, which you can cook on the campfire or in the campsite kitchen.
We’re subsidising this course to keep the cost down as much as possible, because we truly believe in the essential need to learn survival skills in the 21st century. These are skills you can apply in many circumstances, anywhere in the world.
