PASSIONATE COACHES

MIKE vel SNUFKIN

As a seasoned bushcraft coach, my journey with nature began as a young scout, igniting a lifelong passion for the wilderness that grows stronger each day. With a rich history as a backpacker across Europe's varied landscapes, I bring a wealth of diverse outdoor experiences to my teachings. My skills as a wood carver and a former chef infuse our bushcraft adventures with creativity and a flair for wilderness cuisine. The forest, my second home, offers a sanctuary where calm and connection to nature are paramount, and I am eager to share this serenity with you.

Beyond my practical skills, I possess a very strong background in psychology and holistic teaching, which allows me to create a learning environment that not only teaches survival skills but also promotes mental well-being and personal growth. This approach ensures that my students not only learn to thrive in the wilderness but also discover more about themselves in the process.

Certified with a DBS check and qualified as a First Aider Level 3, I prioritize the safety and well-being of all participants, ensuring a secure and supportive setting for our adventures. My love for wild camping and nature is not just a hobby; it's a profound way of life that I joyfully impart to my students. Evenings by the campfire, with guitar in hand, are my favorite moments, filled with music and stories under the starlit sky.

As a positive and enthusiastic guide, I strive to inspire and instill confidence in every individual, regardless of their skill level. Having introduced my two young children to the joys of hiking and camping from a tender age, I understand the value of patience and fun in outdoor education. My holistic approach, combined with my professional qualifications, ensures a comprehensive and enriching learning experience.

My classes are more than just bushcraft sessions; they are an invitation to forge a deep, respectful bond with the wilderness. Join me, and let's start a transformative journey where each step is an opportunity to learn, explore, and grow in the embrace of nature. Together, we will embark on a path of discovery, equipped not just with the skills for outdoor survival, but with a deeper understanding of our place in the natural world.
