Survival course - firelightingWhy Wildside

Here at Wildside Survival we aim to teach you the key skills to live comfortably in the great outdoors, Our courses are run in a lovely part of West Sussex which is only an hour away from London.

Having Fun

All our courses are run in a relaxed way to make them as informative as possible. We want all our customers to have fun and to go away from our course with a sense of achievement.

Wildside Survival’s main instructor is Kevin Wadey who was bought up in the local area of West Sussex and spent most of his childhood learning about the outdoor life. In 2005/6 Kevin was able to get his interest in Bushcraft and outdoor skills formally recognised by achieving anationally recognised qualification as a Bushcraft and Outdoor instructor.

To gain this qualification Kevin had to show an Understanding of the natural environment along with various teaching skills, legislation and Health and Safety and of course Bushcraft. With the course Kevin gained his BELA certificate (Basic Expedition Leaders Award). This qualifies Kevin to take groups of people out for walks in lowland britain (Kevin is hoping to do his Mountain Leaders award some time in the near future) Kevin also holds a creative craft certificate which involves wood carving and he is also a qualified First Aider.
