North American Bushcraft School West Virginia
What is Bushcraft? There are so many terms in use for what we mean by “bushcraft”. Re-wilding is one of our favorites, but also survival, homesteading, and sustainable living. We think of it as a journey towards a life of generalism. We should know how to make and find food; we should be able to find water and shelter anywhere we go; we should be able to make the things we need even if we don’t always do it. These skills help us to understand the impact of our lives on others. Instead of relying on corporations to provide our lives for us, we want to do it ourselves and to pass those skills along to you. Our goal is to pass on the knowledge and skills necessary to keep our culture’s primitive technologies alive. We strive to provide the most authentic, exciting and affordable courses possible. We believe that the practice of primitive skills fosters self-reliance, personal growth, sustainable lifestyles, and a unique sense of community as well as a deep awareness of the delicate planet we call home.
