About the Weekend
Saturday 11:30-Meet and Greet, we will jump straight in, you will be taught the basics, map reading, bushcraft and outdoor cooking. As we are all ex-military instructors the training will be "military style". We will check understanding, clarify any queries and ensure everybody is ready, then we will disperse and using what you have just been taught, you will navigate through some of Luxembourgs finest countryside, completing a basic Orienteering course, ultimately arriving at our "base camp". You will light a fire, learn some basic outdoor skills, prepare a healthy soup and settle yourself in for the night-we will build "Bivvies" should things get too tough we will have tents available. Before bed, we will conduct a night time "Exercise" this will test all that you have been taught during the daytime.
Sunday 08:00- Up early and we will begin with a "bootcamp style training", we will have some fun, boxing and building confidence. You will be taught some "rope work" and build your own "zip wire". You will get the chance to prepare your own lunch using our backpackerfood (outdoorandactive.net) menu's. Then it will be back "on the track", for another hike, this time we will walk together, explaining as we go, all our little tricks that have kept us going over the years. We will take a break were you will cook your own lunch.
Sunday 16:00- Disperse-we will provide a summary of your performance and should you require a fitness traiing plan to help you improve for the next time "We go out"
