We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors. We borrow it from our children” Haida Indian saying.

The ancient wilderness living skills which today are grouped loosely together under the somewhat romantic title of Bushcraft are the skills of our forebears, practical skills which enabled them to make fire, find shelter, water and food in an often unfriendly world, but they are also skills which taught them a deep respect for nature and the world around them.
It is these same skills and this same respect that we at Bearclaw Bushcraft teach today for they have not changed in millennia.
More than this our ancestors vast knowledge also enabled them to live in harmony with nature and helped them to foster a deeper understanding of the passing seasons as well as the circle of life of which, we too, are still a part.
We look forward to you one day joining us in the glowing warmth and friendship of our camp fire, a place which has always been the traditional starting point for all great journeys. Its glowing heart is the stepping stone on to the ancient paths and trails where our ancestors once, so wisely trod, and a place were we hope to guide you as you begin your own bushcraft journey.
