Ever fancied yourself as Ray Mears? Reckon you could survive in the wild using no more than a pile of twigs and a bit of stone? For the adventurous feller, a stag weekend pub crawl doesn't always cut it!
When civilisation collapses and we're all forced to live off the land, the first thing you'll need to do is build a shelter. The second thing? Make a fire. The wild boys and girls and this bushcraft centre know how to do both, in pretty much any kind of environment and weather! Learn how to construct a sturdy bivouac from natural materials, lashed together with specialist knots, and get warm with a fire created from scratch. Even the most urbanised city-dweller on the stag weekend will be beating his chest and roaring like a caveman as the sparks turn into flames.
Derby's a fantastic place to learn a bit of bushcraft. It's in the heart of the Midlands, surrounded by hills and wooded country. If your groom is a man of the mountains, or just wants to do something completely different, this is the stag weekend activity for you. Learn multiple skills on this three hour course, and come back to the city a changed chap.
