Construct your survival shelter in the woods

Offered on set dates as a group course open to mixed bookings, suitable for individuals, friends, couples and more, this course takes a maximum group size of 8.

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.

Max group size of 8.

Learn to make fire with natural materials

Short on time and only have a day available? This is the course for you. Covering all the bushcraft and survival fundamentals in a one day course, you won’t find better value learning on the market. Offered on a private booking basis, you have the flexibility to pick the best available date to fit into your busy schedule. Again, all we ask is for a minimum of two adult tickets to book the day.

looking out at the view on a guided walk

The mountains are one of the UK’s harshest environments and shouldn’t be undertaken lightly. Spend an action packed training day with an experienced and qualified instructor to learn the essential skills needed to successfully survive and thrive in this remote and hazardous habitat.

Suitable for beginner and more experienced hill walkers alike, spend a full day in the rugged Langdale fells honing your navigational skills and learning the necessary survival skills to prevent yourself being another mountain rescue statistic. Always be prepared, knowledge weighs nothing and knowing what basic equipment to carry (and how to use it) will save your life.


Winter walking in the Lake District

This two-day overnight wild camping expedition will provide you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the mountains, learning the key skills to survive in this extreme environment. Welcome to the real Lake District in all its rugged glory.
