Run by a team of passionate individuals with a mountain of experience and all relevant qualifications, participants come from across the whole of Gosport – and indeed far and wide – to spend a few days sleeping outdoors, cooking their food on an open pit fire and learning about themselves.

Participants will learn how to build shelters to protect them from the elements, forage for edible foods in the woodland, learn about plant medicines and primitive living and recognise animal signs and tracks, all under the guidance and tutelage of expertly trained and highly experienced individuals.

With an all-inclusive ethos Sunrise Bushcraft Outdoor Academy welcomes all groups of people.
