Bushcraft

A new word in the Voyageur Program.

Where survival is a set of knowledge and skills to face an unexpected emergency situation in the wilderness, bushcraft on the other hand has a wanted and more postive notion in it. Bushcraft is about living in and with nature. Bushcraft has to do with self reliance but also with an enlarged perception and awereness of our environment.

In the Voyageur program we’ll be on the way with minimal gear. We’ll cover Map and compas, fire, camp building, and much more.

Each season will have its way of travelling: Fall, hiking. Winter, Snowshoeing, Spring, canoeing!

We’ll be on our way as a small group. We’ll use public transportation to get there. We’ll hike, snowshoe or paddle to our camp. Even if it is not a condition test, everyonne should be able to hike with a backpack or paddle. It is not intended as an extreme personal experience. The idea is to share knowledge, useful techniques and a great time. This course is suited for beginners as well as advanced practitioners. In the Voyageur program we’ll be on the way with minimal gear. We’ll cover Map and compas, fire, camp building, and much more. We’ll cook together on open fires. Ready for an adventure week end?
