TheCanoeMan School of Wilderness Bushcraft


Getting back
to Basics

TheCanoeMan welcomes you to the TheCanoeMan School of Wilderness Bushcraft.

The School runs a selection of courses designed to allow you to experience nature like never before; exploring the forgotten art of Bushcraft tracing back to our indigenous ancestors, utilising skills from around the world. It will open your mind to a different way of exploring and enjoying the world around you in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The Bushcraft School offers 1 and 2 day courses that have been specially designed for those who wish to cover the essential skills and to show you how enjoyable and rewarding bushcraft can be, or to build upon the basic skills introduced on the canoe bushcraft trails. The courses are conducted at one of a number of unique and beautiful woodland areas throughout Norfolk. Individuals, couples, families and small groups are all welcome. All instructors are current CRB checked and hold current BCU approved first aid qualifications.

The one day course is an introduction to the basic fundamentals of Bushcraft with one of our specialist Bushcraft instructors. No previous experience required, just bring along a good sense of humour!

The two day course covers the fundamentals of Bushcraft in greater depth, including an overnight stay in the woods under your own shelter*, dinner, breakfast and lunch. No previous experience.
