We have added a new one to our bushcraft training/activity campsites across Turkey. In the first 5 days of our 15-day activity, we wanted to share with you the setup of our campsite, the construction of our bushcraft long-term shelter, and the pleasant time we spent.
You can watch the detailed construction story of this shelter, which we have shared before, in this video. Bushcraft can be described as the discipline of sustaining life in nature. It was very popular for a while in Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and even transformed into sports and cultural activities.
In fact, when we look at very old times, we see how our ancestors survived in the most primitive conditions in nature and how high their hunting skills were. We call bushcraft the ability of our ancestors to develop these skills and survive in the most primitive conditions.
Bushcraft discipline both adds cultural value to people and develops their personal skills. WildPeace Survival & Bushcraft Academy, which has a serious education staff in Turkey, provides serious training on the discipline of survival in nature. By participating in these training programs, you can improve your skills and set your own limits.
