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.


For groups private sessions can be run at any time of year.

 Sessions running during the school holidays, check 'activity days' for dates and prices.
