Wild Country Walkabouts runs workshops and bespoke bushcraft courses for groups and individuals . These can be at venues with a fixed basecamp or on the move, through the countryside. Courses may be booked for half days, full days or extended periods with overnight camps.
We also run bushcraft themed workshops for conferences and as part of Continuing Professional Development for teachers, youth workers and outdoor instructors. Please see Schools & Colleges page.
