“We booked a bushcraft session with Drock and we all had a great time, from lighting fires with a flint, making a shelter, to filtering river water with moss, the children had a very nice time and we are booking again this summer.”

“Our guide Drock was happy to share his knowledge of bushcraft with us, and provided local insights into areas and groups online to discuss bushcraft with like-minded people. Further skills such as using the bushcraft knife effectively and how to forage for wild food were particularly interesting aspects of the trip.”

“Just finished a team building course with Drock, our team had a wonderful time learning outdoor survival skills like shelter building, water purification, foraging, and fire building. It all got very competitive and the team had a good laugh. We all came away from it wanting to connect more to the outdoors. A great way to relieve stress. Thanks Drock, we can't thank you enough!”
