Bushcraft Skills on Dartmoor

Start to develop your Bushcraft skills, ready to go wilderness walking; we learn to light fires and build small shelters. Eating marshmallows round the campfire is a great way to end a fun session.

Bushcraft is a very popular activity at the moment and is available for groups and family activity programmes. At Bracken Tor if it's wet, we meet at our traditional roundhouse made from Hazel branches and thatched using traditional techniques, similar to Bronze Age roundhouses.

Also check out our Wild Camping on Dartmoor, where we walk out onto Dartmoor, camp overnight, and discover how to use natural navigation techniques, look at the stars, hear the skylarks and enjoy the wildreness.

These activities can be combined for a weekend long course on Bushcraft skills where you learn to make shelters and get the basic skills of firelighting and water harvesting before heading off for a night on Dartmoor, making your own shelters, and sleeping in them.
