Bushcraft & Survival
Bushcraft techniques, like all survival techniques, include different skills, such as lighting a fire, following the tracks of animals and knowing how to hunt them, build shelter, effectively use various types of blades according to needs, recognize edible plants and herbs, build wooden tools or containers using natural materials and make ropes.
HOW IT WORKS
A survival course or bushcamp will get you out of your comfort zone and find out where you can go.
Followed step by step by expert instructors, you will be guided in the acquisition of the necessary techniques to learn how to manage alone in a new territory and with little equipment.
In this context, in an outdoor setting, you will learn how to build a shelter for the night, to light a fire in all conditions and to obtain drinking water from mud pools. You will also learn how to navigate wild environments with the only help of a map and a compass.
At the end of a course like this you will have the fundamental knowledge to face your next adventure, whether it is a trekking or an excursion to explore the most beautiful natural parks.
There are also Modern Survival courses, with which you will learn to cope with the needs in a possible survival situation by exploiting commonly used objects (such as key rings), technological (smartphone, watch, etc.) and some modern tools.
In this article I have described my bushcamp experience and the difference between bushcraft and survival.
