Bushcraft skills program in the Chilcotin Mountains of BC


Get ready to become one with nature. On this program you’ll learn bushcraft skills that empower you to see the wilderness with new eyes. As you discover how to use the bountiful resources that nature provides, everything around you becomes a useful, life-giving material. Throughout this wilderness course, you’ll train in the pristine wilderness and stunning mountains of British Columbia. Learn valuable skills and take on new challenges, like identifying medicinal plant species and building a bushcraft shelter. After completing this program you’ll be armed with the bushcraft skills and working knowledge to experience nature in a more authentic way, along with the confidence to embark on your own wilderness adventures.

Throughout this course you’ll learn essential bushcraft skills that will bring you back to nature. This wilderness course trains you to work with nature instead of against it, allowing you to journey through new environments with a greater degree of confidence and comfort. As your experienced instructor teaches you vital bushcraft skills through demonstrations, hands-on training, and real-life scenarios, you’ll hone your skills to a degree that far surpasses the superficial knowledge of most bushcraft courses. By immersing you in a wilderness setting as you learn, our wilderness course provides a deeper level of training that allows you to fully appreciate and utilize the rich resources nature provides.

Bushcraft skills covered include:

Navigation in the wilderness
Procuring food in remote wilderness
Construction of a bushcraft shelter
Essential bushcraft skills: Making cordage (natural twine), using fire to carve wood, cooking in the wild with stone boiling and rock ovens
Fire-building techniques, including construction of your own bow-drill fire starting set
Tracking and trapping game
Identification of plant species
Utilizing beneficial properties of plants and trees
Safe and effective knife and axe use
Wildlife behavior
Other useful tips and tricks, like how to improve night vision

This program is set in the beautiful, challenging, and rugged terrain of the South Chilcotin Mountains in British Columbia. This majestic setting alone provides enough inspiration to expand your vision and horizons in life. In this wilderness course, however, we incorporate new challenges for you to tackle each and every day. The bushcraft skills that you learn and master throughout the course are a means of building greater confidence as you become more accustomed to operating outside of your comfort zone. This unique combination of inspiring wilderness and thrilling challenges impacts your outlook in a way that few other experiences can. We appreciate the special opportunity here, so we craft all of our bushcraft courses to be nature-focused and challenge-rich. That way, you’ll leave with the competence and confidence to embark on your own life-changing wilderness adventures.
