Bushcraft Courses & Crafting Workshops

Based in the lakes region of New Hampshire, the Jack Mountain Bushcraft Folk School offers programs in outdoor skills, ecology and nature lore, crafting and building traditional outdoor gear, sustainability and other skills for a simple, handmade life. Unlike our field school programs in northern Maine, camping is not a required part of the experience.

Programs are focused on remembering our connection with the natural world. We use the term remember in two ways. First, it is to recall something that has been forgotten. Second, it is the opposite of dismember – building a connection to a part of the human experience that has been severed. Our goal is to empower people to be more confident, competent and at home in the natural world.

We’re in the midst of a big web site overhaul, so if things look a little off that’s why. This is the home to our short courses and all programs based in New Hampshire. If you’re looking for our field school immersion programs, they’re at JackMtn.com.
