Bushcraft courses at Bedgebury Camping

  • Firelighting
  • Campfire cooking 
  • Search & Navigate
  • Camp Craft 
  • Explorers 
  • Escape & Evasion


These courses help achieve a greater understanding of the natural environment, through hands-on experience and expert guidance from our course leaders who have a passion for nature.  By learning about what is around us we can really start to appreciate and value the wonders of nature.  Participants do not need to bring anything with them as all materials and equipment is provided.  All we ask is that participants arrive with a willingness to listen and learn.  

It is not necessary for children to be accompanied by a parent or guardian, but we do ask that parents/guardians stay on the campsite while their child is attending a course. 

The timings of the specific courses are available on our booking system and booking can be added as part of the booking process via 'Book Now'.  It is also possible to add them in to an existing booking. Please go to 'amend' your booking.
