Spend a fun day developing your outdoor savvy. Learn to tie the most essential knots, light a fire safely and consistently, hang a tarp quickly and securely, chop wood, build a tripod, pack essential kit and much more. The goal of this course is to make you comfortable and safe in any natural environment. Whether you’re out for a picnic, hike or expedition, these skills will serve you well.

This full-day course will introduce a variety of bushcraft skills, from useful knots and safe fire-use to navigation and ecology. We will provide the tools needed but feel free to bring your own equipment.

It runs from 9am till 4:00pm. Participants should bring their own lunch and snacks, as well as clothes suited to the weather. It will take place at the Macphail Woods Nature Centre. Registrations can be done online through our booking system or by phone (902)651-2575 or email (danielmcrae@macphailwoods.org).

We use our very own Nature Centre, located on the Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead property, as a home base for all of our outdoor activities. Located just 20 minutes east of Charlottetown, the Macphail Woods Nature Centre has a variety of teaching spaces and is surrounded by 140 acres of forest and field. Winding through the property are four trails, a stream and one of the province’s finest remaining examples of our native Acadian forest.
