Project Survival Croatia - Obuka za preživljavanje, traganje i spašavanje

Prezivjeti - Survival, Tracking and Rescue school based in Croatia

We offer courses in Croatian, English, German and Italian!

Our survival courses are based on our uniqe ASTRS system (applied survival, tracking and rescue system). We belive that students must be trained in all those segments for complete confidence in the remote wilderness or survival situation.
Survival - navigation, shelter building, fire techniques in all weather conditions, water and food gathering, toolmaking, survival kits, remote first aid, signalling and much more.

Tracking - tracking on different terrains, pathfinding, human tracking, animal tracking, situational awareness, scouting and more.
Rescue - search and rescue techniques, self-rescue techniques, signalling and safe movement over various terrains.
We offer basic, advanced and proffesional survival courses. We are also autors and hosts of First Croatian survival TV show.

Croatian Outdoor Survival School

Survival knowledge are all that skills that can improve your permanation in hostile area or in life risk situations for limited period of time necessary to be rescued by rescuers or by reaching the goal on self rescuing.
Nowadays, there is an abundance of false information about survival and bushcraft on film and television, which portrays an unrealistic picture of the actual survival skills and situations. Such superficial, 'trendy' survival manuals, without using actual facts and experiential survival and bushcraft knowledge, create only a profound confusion of what the survival really is, and how to live through it. Therefore, there is nothing that can replace a realistic experience.
Our school was born with primary mission of teaching people to survive, or better - live in the nature. Now, we growth up and become a point of survival knowledges in our district. Per example, all our students after only one course frequented with us become our active survival school members.
We're transforming our survival school into unique survival movement, made from similar people with deep love for survival and bushcraft skills, nature and adventure that are looking forward into the future of personal expansion.

Website: - Survival and Bushcraft - Karlsruhe

Unser Ziel ist es, mit Survival und Bushcraft Werte und Fähigkeiten zu vermitteln, die im besonderen Maße das Kulturgut ein jeder indigenen Gesellschaft gewesen sind. Fertigkeiten, die nicht nur das Übeleben mit Hilfe steinzeitlicher Techniken sichern, sondern im gleichen Zuge ein gesteigertes Wertgefühl der uns umgebenen Umwelt als Basis der Autarkie geben. 
Unser Anspruch liegt dabei darin, jedem Interessierten ein Basisprogramm zu vermitteln, das ihm einerseits als Vorbereitung auf Extremreisen, Expeditionenoder zum Beispiel dem Wehrdienst dient, andererseits als Sensibilisierung für die uns umgebenen natürlichen Zusammenhänge zu wirken.

So bieten die Fortbildungen in ihrer Heterogenität jedem Interessierten, ob Anfänger oder Überlebensspezialist eine fundierte Basis für eigeninstruiertes Lernen und das nötige Wissen, um sich sicher und ohne Furcht auch in unbekannten Gegenden sicherlich aufkommende Herausforderungen zu meistern.

Bushcraft Vereniging


De enige Nederlandse vereniging voor bushcraft, outdoor en survival.

Kokopelli Earthkeepers Survival School , Malden
De cursussen van Kokopelli Nederland worden verzorgt door stichting Kokopelli en gaan over leven & overleven en hebben allemaal hetzelfde doel: Thuis op Aarde. Wij doen dat door cursisten te leren overleven met alleen de aarde als hulpmiddel. Zo kun je van blad, naalden of gras een waterdichte slaapzak maken en hoef je dus nooit meer een tent en een slaapzak mee te sjouwen. Je kunt vuur maken door twee stukken hout tegen elkaar te wrijven en water koken in een kom die het vuur voor je heeft gemaakt. Dan hoef je nooit meer bang te zijn dat je lucifers nat worden en je brander kun je wel thuis laten.
Tijdens een cursus bij Kokopelli ga je even terug in tijd; terug naar een tijd toen mensen nog jager en verzamelaar waren. De aarde heeft namelijk alles wat je nodig hebt om te leven. Je hoeft alleen maar te leren waar het ligt en hoe je het kunt bewerken. Als je in een natuurlijke wereld onderdak, water, vuur en voeding kunt vinden, dan wordt overleven een stuk makkelijker. Als je daarbij nog de Aarde en alle andere wonderen als niet vanzelfsprekend benadert, dan heb je er binnen de kortste keren een hoop vrienden bij. Dan wordt overleven … leven en dat is het mooie van thuis op aarde zijn: je gaat je echt thuis voelen in die natuurlijke omgeving, want je weet waar alles ligt, net alsof je thuis bent. Je eigen huis maak je ook niet vuil, omdat je er morgen wilt kunnen leven. Dat geldt ook voor de Aarde: we maken het bos niet vuil, want morgen kijk je er tegenaan of vind je dat vuil in je salade.

Northern Ireland - UK, Europa

The Northern Ireland Survival School


The Northern Ireland Survival School is a Northern Ireland based company teaching Bushcraft and Wilderness living skills in Northern Ireland.


We provide Bushcraft courses as outdoor activities to private individuals and groups as well as catering for team building and public and private events.



At Northern Ireland Survival School we believe in a back to basics approach to skills and teaching.

The courses that we run are certainly not military style boot camps and neither are they for the tree hugging fanatic who wants to lose themselves in nature. Our courses are based on a healthy respect for the environment we live in and we teach bushcraft skills which harness nature and work with it rather than working against it.


Please have a look at our website if you have any queries about Bushcraft or the outdoor activity courses we provide or you would like any other questions answered contact us at

The Northern Ireland Bushcraft Association
The Northern Ireland Bushcraft Association or N.I.B.A. was founded in 2008 by a group of friends who met due to their love of the great outdoors and passion for bushcraft. The group started off meeting in local parks and forest areas around Northern Ireland, before making application to public and private estates in a bid to secure a more permanent site.
After a lot of letter writing, emailing and determination, the NIBA has been given  permission from Larne Borough council and the Management Team at Carnfunnock for the exclusive use of  Carnfunnock Country Park for Bushcraft!     
We will be organizing  Bushcraft events each year at Carnfunnock at minimal or no cost to the public who would like to take part (minimal cost will be for food or refreshments or materials to use on the course). These will be stand alone 1 day courses in Bushcraft skills. We will also be taking part in some of the major events organized by the Park itself, so if you would like to have a go at being Ray Mears for the day contact Carnfunnock Country Park for a full list of up coming events ( their number is on our bushcraft schools and websites page).      
We at the NIBA are always on the look out for new sites to practice our skills and pass on what we know, so if you or someone you know owns or has access to land or wooded areas and would be willing to let us use them for Bushcraft or you would like to know more about bushcraft and wilderness living skills then give us a shout at the email address or telephone number below.

We strive to give each student a deeper understanding of the natural world, allowing them to feel part of their environment and so live closer to it.

Shomtei Hagen - "Keepers of the garden"
Holistic ecology - the use of hunter/gatherer skills as tools for a better  understanding of mankind and the world.
Hunter/gatherer societies existed for hundreds of thousands of years, experiencing their connectedness to the earth and the great spirit, being provided for their needs and in return acting as "caretakers" of the land.
Based on this conviction we, in "Shomrei Hagan" (the keepers of the garden) are busy passing on the ancient knowledge and wisdom of the "earth cultures" applied to our modern life. This, in a wide variety of programs targeting adults as well as children and youth.
This is what we teach:

Fire starting and maintenance. Eskimo drill, hand drill, fire types, the role fire plays in our lives.

stabilire dei momenti di silenzio in cui i giovani possono concentrarsi su se stessi e sentire i propri pensieri;
sviluppare l’immaginazione; far sì che il gioco sia una componente educativa importante ma non dominante; liberare i figli del benessere dalla convinzione di essere dei privilegiati.
Questi princìpi vogliono esprimere un approccio educativo volto alla formazione del carattere assieme allo sviluppo di abilità intellettuali.
Tal scopo questa filosofia educativa è orientata a sollecitare le risorse più profonde (intellettuali, fisiche ed emotive) attraverso attività fisiche che si svolgono Outdoor (all'aperto).

I'm ex British Military, and trained in Arctic survival. My fiance and I moved from  the United Kingdom, the borders of Swedish Lapland, in October 2008. Compared to some of the Bushcraft Tours being advertised online, for example on Ray Mear's course is very good value for money! I want to make it accessible for everyone. I am even running shorter camps for families, and discount rates. These courses get booked up fast, as I only have room for 6 - 8 people per group. So book now to avoid disapointement!

Thailand - Asia

Paddle Asia - Thailand
Thailand's History of Outdoor Survival Skills
One of the many things that impress many travelers in Thailand is the ability of the locals to live off of the jungle. Today, most Thais don’t have to rely on the jungle for sustenance, though they have retained much of their ability to identify wild edible and medicinal plants.
In addition to knowing a lot about the plants in the jungle, many Thais still know how to make temporary shelters and many other jungle crafts that would make being lost in the verdant terrain… not so uncomfortable. Fish trap
PaddleAsia's Thai guides are well-adapted to living off of the land. All of our guides came from simple backgrounds and fairly poor families. I (Dave) will combine their natural jungle survival skills with my lifelong love of the outdoors and survival skills to provide you with an opportunity to visit the jungles of Southern Thailand with the bare minimum of tools. Take advantage of our collective skills.
Jungle Survival Courses (in Khao Sok National Park)
PaddleAsia offers a variety of jungle survival courses in Thailand. One of our jungle survival courses take place in Khao Sok National Park. This course combines jungle survival with kayaking. 
As far as picking wild edible plants go, we would not pick any plant that is uncommon or rare.  Rare plants will be pointed out, but not eaten. In other words, we’d only sample plants that are very common and that are capable of growing back rapidly. Luckily for you, there are many plants that fall into this last category. You’ll get to eat directly from the jungle.

Sigma III Survival School

We are very eco-friendly and try to leave as little impact on the planet as possible. But we are not a no trace left behind organization. We do not buy into the fact that it is possible to leave no trace behind, but we do try to limit our ecological impact as much as possible. Sigma III believes that we should not act as if we are not apart of the wilderness, but good stewards of our enviroment. When we take wild edibles from the land we only take what we need, and we always try to make an effort to improve upon the land we depend on! For instance, if we take a plant for sustenance, we try to spread the growth of that plant by scattering and planting it seeds. When the next person comes along and partakes of the wild edibles, we ensure that it will be better for generations to come!
The founder of Sigma III has been a survivalist for years and has always wanted to have something like what we are creating with the school right now. After searching for a place to train primitive survival skills and having no real luck without driving too far, I decided to just build one myself! I'm a local business owner and lifelong resident of Fort Smith, AR. Though I have hung my hat here in town for a long time, I have traveled out west in the rockies and have been to the middle east. Specifically Iraq! I'm a iraqi vet that came back from the sandbox with a strong desire to increase my knowledge of survivalism and tactical situations awareness.
It has been my dream to walk into the wilderness with only the knife on my side and create everything you need from nothing but my mind and a few tools. I don't mean the kind of survival that is a struggle such as you see survivorman go through. My survivalism is one where a man is just like any other animal in the wilderness, not a visitor, but a being at one with the world and his enviroment! I hope to share my passion with a group of like minded individuals who see the world for what it is, and want to take their God given right to exist in harmony in their own enviroment. If you have a hunger to discover the unknown and test yourself beyond your limits, then come join us and lets create something together!
