Basic course (2 days)

is intended for all nature lovers who want to learn more about survival skills and try different techniques but do not want psycho-physical tests. It is somewhat similar in content to the 3-day challenge course, but less detailed and difficult. Food and slightly more comfortable sleeping are provided on the course.

The foundation course is not physically demanding. It is intended for adults, but is also suitable for children from 8 years old when accompanied by a responsible person.

Course topics

  • finding wild food and preparing it,
  • basics of orientation,
  • the basics of bivouac construction,
  • making fire in primitive ways,

  • production of accessories from natural materials,
  • safe use of tools,
  • identification of edible and useful plants,
  • learning basic knots,

The topics are adjusted according to the conditions in the forest and according to the wishes of the participants.
