Dryad Bushcraft CIC (Community Interest Company) is a well established Bushcraft and Wilderness Survival School, based on the Gower Peninsular, Swansea in South Wales.
Established in 2004, Dryad Bushcraft CIC have earned ourselves a place as one of the foremost providers of practical Bushcraft training in the UK. We offer a range of courses for the beginner to experienced practitioner, and also specialise in training for corporate development, and teambuilding. Our instructors come from a diverse range of backgrounds including the Military, Outdoor pursuits and expedition leadership, to bring you safe and enjoyable wilderness training within the stunning surrounding of the UK’s first AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural beauty) The Area covers 188 sq Km with a coastline of 59 Km. Its complex geological formation has created a diverse range of terrain, condensed into a relatively small area. The South coast of Gower is predominantly carboniferous limestone which has formed into spectacular cliffs and sandy bays, popular with Rock climbers and surfers. The north coast is dominated by salt marshes and sand dunes, which support a range of flora and fauna to rival any in the UK. The inland sections of Gower play host to large areas of common land and sandstone heath ridges, including the majestic Cefn Bryn. Steep sided glacial valleys support plentiful deciduous and coniferous woodlands, perfect for the study of Bushcraft skills. The term Bushcraft is a recently adopted and more socially acceptable name for the practice of survival techniques and primitive living skills. What was once the exclusive preserve of a relatively small group of slightly odd people wearing camouflaged Jackets, wielding Axes, and building bivouacs in the woods, has now become the fastest growing Outdoor Pursuit in the United Kingdom.
We are committed to youth development and promoting the sustainable use of natural resources.
