Bushcraft and Survival Team Building
Whether you would like a team building day or another type of corporate event, we can cater for your needs with our bespoke courses.
Test your team's resourcefulness and ability of team members to coordinate with one another in a challenging natural environment. Get your staff out of their office chairs and nurture your team's strength in a natural environment.
Away from the day-to-day workplace, people can show sides of themselves that may not normally be obvious.
While foraging requires an eye for detail and observation, fire lighting needs patience and determination to create the right conditions to allow the fire to flourish. Building a shelter, meanwhile, demands innovation and creativity.
And crucially, each of the activities require effective teamwork. See what qualities develop that you didn't know you had.
Programmes can be created to meet your needs, either to enhance teamwork or just to have a day doing something different.

What people say about their day?
"I’ve used London Bushcraft on a number of times for our team building events and the reason I choose them is that they really understand needs of my team and what we would like to achieve. The bushcraft event they organised for my team was excellent. I feel there is a great deal of authenticity in the instructors' knowledge and expertise, giving all attendees confidence in what they are doing. I would absolutely recommend London Bushcraft. Organizing events that engage Managing Director and Director level staff from major financial institution is never easy, but feedback on this event has been incredibly positive. One individual said that in 10 years of working for our organisation, it’s the best team building event they have attended“, Sebastian Barret
‘We spent a day with the London Bushcraft team for our summer party. Wendy managed to seamlessly organise the day perfectly for our group of over 100 people. We learnt how to make fire, forage and build our own shelters and came together for a huge impressive slow roast lamb lunch in the woods. Everyone really got involved and it was great to see colleagues come together outside the office in a team building environment. All of the instructors were extremely knowledgeable about bushcraft and survival skills and we all went home having learnt some valuable skills whilst having a really fun day out. I would thoroughly recommend this experience", Leanne Gilbert, Product Madness
“Our learning and development team booked in with Wendy and her team to do something different from our normal team meetings. Our group had a very immersive day considering the weather conditions we faced. What our group particularly liked was the consolidation element where we reflected on key aspects of the day.Our team is quite spread across the South of England so having the activity taking place in Barnes was ideal for us all with easy access. Would definitely recommend to any group wishing to improve team cohesion”, The Fuller’s Learning and Development Team
“We’re so glad we found London Bushcraft for our staff day out. From the initial enquiry to the day itself Wendy has been friendly, efficient and keen to accommodate our needs and interests. The staff were quite clearly passionate about bushcraft and sharing their skills. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wendy and her team at London Bushcraft. I don’t know how we could follow such a memorable staff day. It’s certainly good for team building and they easily managed with a large staff group of 33 people. Thank you!”, Emma Marrington, Campaign to Protect Rural England
"London Bushcraft created a bespoke program of bushcraft activities for our Vivobarefoot Summer Festival. The event was very well planned and organised, meeting all our special requirements. This included roasting three whole lambs over a fire pit which resulted in an amazing taste experience! We will be inviting them to come back next year!", Galahad Clark, Vivobarefoot
"Everyone loved the event, it was a great for the whole office to have an engaging and interesting team building day. This really hit the spot in what we were looking for. A great day had by all", Roxane Hackwood, Sustrans
"Perfect, just what we wanted. Friendly instructors and a perfect location. Only wish we had more time!" Richard Rodrigues, Synergy Sponsorship
"Excellent day. Good to get together as a team outside usual work environment and all try something new. It also helped to break down normal hierarchy", Svetlana Kiov, Diabetes UK
"I want you to know how much I appreciate the excellent service provided by you and your delightful colleagues in organising a buscraft activity for our staff team. We were all very pleased with the activities especially the fire techniques and navigation. It was fun at the same time very informative. Your great communication skills and ready smile made the experience even better than we expected. I would love to recommend your company to anyone who needs a corporate team building activity or day out in the future", Rashmi Sharma, Blue Ventures
