Our goal

gear up


In the last few years, the word “bushcraft” has been commercialized and as a result has lost much of its meaning. For us at BCNW, it still means possessing the knowledge and skills (both traditional and modern) that lets one travel confidently through the wilderness with a minimal reliance on gear. We also believe these skills should not be reserved for the occasional trip to the backcountry or emergency situation but be a part of everyday life. Whether you are a hiker, naturalist, Search and Rescue, Military or outdoor professional, we have a course that will enhance your knowledge regardless of experience level. For strictly city dwellers, we apply the same pragmatic approach to our new Urban skills course for surviving in today's concrete jungles.
