An accessible way of learning bushcraft and survival skills is to attend a Bushcraft Weekend. On a typical weekend, participants both give and follow workshops on outdoor-related subjects. An organizer in the Netherlands of these kinds of weekends is Stichting Bushcraft.
Over the years I helped organize a number of Dutch Bushcraft Weekends with Rob Hofman, Anneke Treep and others. We held two weekends per year, typically at a scouting centre, and they quickly grew in popularity from 20 to 150 participants. I stopped organizing in 2010 but Stichting Bushcraft keeps the weekends going.
