We are offering two dates in 2022 of our classic Two Day Wilderness Survival Training Course:

Saturday 11th June to Sunday 12th June 2022
Saturday 10th September to Sunday 11th September 2022

Spend a weekend in the Lake District with Green Man Survival learning survival skills and useful bushcraft techniques that you can take with you on all your outdoor adventures. This is all about practical application in real world situations, to arm you with knowledge and the ability to be prepared to deal with the unexpected.

On this course we will cover the same skills as delivered on our one day Thriver experience (shelter, fire, water, food, navigation, signalling, medical and movement) but with much more time allowed to immerse yourself and refine the techniques. With hands on learning to hone your skills over this extended period, you will leave with the confidence that you now own those skills to put in to use when it really matters.

Price: £200 per person

Max group size of 8.

Co-led by James, Green Man Survival founder, and Tom Blakey, former soldier in the elite Pathfinders, this is a one-of-a-kind UK survival course exclusive to Green Man Survival. The objective of this 7 day course is to provide participants the opportunity to learn and practice the fundamental skills of bushcraft and survival while living in a non permissive environment. 

Although this is a structured course with learning at its centre, you will be expected to take responsibility for yourself while under the guidance of our instructor team. You will be living in the shelter you have constructed and take ownership over your own camp craft and wilderness living skills, including water procurement, cooking and personal admin.

With practical demonstrations and plenty of time for you to hone and apply your newly learned skills, putting these into practice over the duration of the course to aid in your success, you will be immersed into this scenario – it will be demanding so expect to get stuck in and work hard! 

Course dates: Monday 22nd August to Sunday 28th August 2022

Price: £895 per person

Max group size of 10.
