Pinpoint Adventure | Bushcraft

What is it?
Ray Mears defines bushcraft as ‘a deeper knowledge of the wild and nature’. In addition to this, Pinpoint Adventure also perceives it as a wonderful mixture of living outdoors, survival skills, foraging for wild food and traditional knowledge; skills that we believe passionately should not be lost. Depending on the length of the course i.e. if it is a half day, full day, or overnight course, the sorts of themes and skills we will cover include: fire, water, shelter, wild food, plants and trees, tracks and signs, bushcraft tools and making craft items

Who can do it?
Anyone with a desire to learn and master these traditional skills can take part in bushcraft.  In addition, if you are attending an overnight event, a desire to build a shelter which you can spend a comfortable night in. We offer bushcraft to adult groups, families, schools and youth groups. For an overnight bushcraft course, we normally have a lower age limit of 10 years old

Where can I do this?
Pinpoint Adventure has access to some truly fantastic sites in the North Pennines where all of the bushcraft activities above are possible. Each of the sites comprises beautiful mixed woodland with a real wilderness feel to them. If it is an overnight course, it is very unlikely we will see anyone else once we arrive at our bushcraft site

When can I do this?
We run half day or full day bushcraft events throughout the year, whilst the overnight courses take place between May and September
