Bushcraft

What is bushcraft?
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, and traditional knowledge; skills that we believe passionately should not be lost. On a typical 'introduction to bushcraft skills' session we look at things such as fire making, water filtration, shelter, trees, 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.  We offer bushcraft to primary and secondary schools, charities / businesses and youth groups / scouts. For our introduction to bushcraft skills sessions we work with all ages and abilities, including adults and children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Where can I do this?
Pinpoint Adventure can bring the bushcraft and survival skills to your site. We always do a site visit (free of charge) to discuss what will work best for your site. Pinpoint Adventure is based in Hexham, Northumberland (northern England), so for many of our sessions we work with schools and groups in the North Pennines, Cumbria, Northumberland and County Durham.

When can I do this?
We run introduction to bushcraft and survival skills courses throughout the year and we will always try to tailor the session to the time of year and the prevailing weather conditions.
