Immerse yourself in the world of bushcraft and survival with our comprehensive range of activities and workshops. From foraging for wild edibles to mastering the art of fire making, our sessions are designed to equip participants with essential skills for thriving in the wilderness.

Under the guidance of our experienced instructors, participants will learn to identify edible plants, navigate using natural landmarks, build sturdy shelters, and start fires using primitive methods. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced outdoors enthusiast, our programmes cater to all skill levels and interests.

Our hands-on approach to learning ensures that participants not only acquire practical skills but also develop a deeper appreciation for the natural world. Through engaging activities and interactive experiences, we aim to instill confidence, resilience, and a sense of connection with the environment.

This is an all year round activity, we will choose appropriate venues for the time of year and midge intensity!

Adventure Carrick are committed to providing courses and activities that not only give participants access to the outdoors but also allow them to gain a greater understanding of the environment around them.

With this in mind we created our Bushcraft course which provides essential survival skills and knowledge in a fun way and appropriate manner according to the age and abilities of the participants.

You will learn to understand how very dependent we are on our environment and the balance of its ecology through various challenges and practical activities which will help you get to grips with the basics of bushcraft.

This will also involve essential fire skills such as finding tinder and kindling, learning about the fire triangle and how to start a fire from a spark.

Later we will look at different kinds of shelter building, methods of finding food and water, identifying plants and animals, various ways of cooking over our fire and throughout we will learn how to stay safe.

Many consider that bushcraft courses are an essential part of learning more about our environment and moreover they are great fun for all.

This is a great activity to combine with archery for a full day out with family or friends.

All participants will require a small pack for the day to carry essentials and suitable footwear for walking in the forest.

Suitable for 6 yrs and upwards

We will bring all the equipment needed with us and meet you at the venue in South Ayrshire or the Galloway’s.

The cost is £45 per person for the 3 hour session and £80 per person for a 6 hour session. This is based on a minimum of 4 people booking. Please contact us for a bespoke price for a smaller group.
