Survival and Bushcraft Schools and Courses around the UK


Survival & Bushcraft Schools and Courses in the UK

Prepping is all about survival – although there is a lot of information on the internet, there’s nothing that beats actually ‘doing it’ for real.

Learning your bushcraft and survival skills from a good survival school is something well worth considering  – there are lots of different areas where you need specific skills, not just how to build a shelter, but ‘real’ survival skills that will keep you alive.

Most UK survival schools include natural medicine and foraging for foods as well as identifying the good from the bad, as well as 100’s of uses for natures materials to help you survive in the wild.

If bugging out is a big part of your disaster survival plan then I highly recommend enrolling on as many, varied survival courses as you can afford.

Even the relatively simple tasks like skinning and preparing an animal for food is something that must be practiced – most UK survival schools go into this is in detail, making sure you gain the knowledge and bushcraft skills needed to keep you alive.
