Global Bushcraft Symposium

An international gathering to promote bushcraft, survival, and traditional skills instruction through the open exchange of philosophies, pedagogical methods and dissemination of best practices within the industry.

HOW?

By developing connections across generations of instructors and cultures of practice.

Emphasizing the critical importance of teaching accurate, fact based and tested skills in their proper context.
