Down2Earth Days Out - Level 3 Country Skills Course

COURSE 3: ADVANCED / SURVIVAL

Typically a 3 day / 2 nights course for individuals or small groups. This course is the natural extension of courses 1 and 2 but does not, depending upon experience, necessarily require previous attendance on those course. Its aim is, through intensive experiential tuition, to empower the client with the knowledge and skills to cope with potentially hostile environments in a variety of scenarios such as emergency, natural events, or just simply for the challenge. We will work with you to live comfortably outdoors using our own resourcefulness and Mother Nature's bounty. This course requires self reliance, yet teamwork, and is very much "hands on". It is run in all seasons and all weathers.
