Please read these Terms & Conditions carefully before making a purchase with us. Once a course completed booking form has been accepted in writing by “Bushcraft and Survival” all the persons named on the booking form (“the client(s)”) will have entered a binding contract on the basis of these Terms & Conditions. If you have any questions about them please do not hesitate to Contact us

“”Bushcraft and Survival”” means “Bushcraft and Survival” , Lijbannsgracht 26N, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Our website address is: https://www.bushcraftandsurvival.eu

1. Agreement

Agreement on the basis these Terms & Conditions arise upon the fulfillment of all of the following: receipt by “Bushcraft and Survival” of a properly completed booking form accompanied by the payment or deposit specified; clearance of the payment or deposit into “Bushcraft and Survival’s¨ bank account; acceptance by “Bushcraft and Survival” in writing.

“Bushcraft and Survival” reserves the right, in its absolute discretion and without the need to give reasons, to refuse to accept a booking. In such circumstances no agreement arises and “Bushcraft and Survival” will return any payment accompanying the booking.

The agreement is between “Bushcraft and Survival” and the client(s) and is the sole agreement between those parties. No variation of these Terms & Conditions shall be applicable unless agreed in writing by “Bushcraft and Survival” before the relevant course.

The agreement is governed by English law.

2. Payment

Full payment is required 6 weeks prior to the start of a course.

3. Prices

Whilst every effort is made to limit prices to those given in the booking, “Bushcraft and Survival” reserves the right to alter prices should its costs in hosting a course increase for reasons beyond its reasonable control (including, without limitation, the cost of labour, transport and materials).

In the event that a price is altered the client(s) will be notified as soon as reasonably possible and the balance of the altered price will be payable on the same terms as was the original price.

In the event of the price being thus increased by 15% or more the client may opt to cancel the booking and will then be entitled to a refund of all monies paid.

4. Cancellation by client(s) on both UK and Overseas Courses

If the booking is canceled by the client(s) (for any reason) the following cancellation charge will arise:

– Cancellation more than 9 weeks before course: 100% of deposit payable, but any final payment made will be refunded.

– Cancellation less than 9 weeks before the course: 100% of fee payable i.e. no refund.

The client acknowledges that it is reasonable for such penalties to arise, given the need for “Bushcraft and Survival” to make preparations for a course substantially in advance of the course.

5. Course Date Changes

Should a customer wish to change the dates of their course, where there is a place available, an administration fee of £25.00 will be charged to transfer. Please note “Bushcraft and Survival” will not be able to transfer a booking if the course is due to start in less than 9 weeks.

6. Variation of a course by “Bushcraft and Survival”

A “Bushcraft and Survival” course is, by its very nature, exposed to natural variables, including the weather. Whilst every reasonable effort is made to deal with (indeed to learn from) such contingencies there may be occasions when “Bushcraft and Survival”, through no fault of its own, is forced to vary or modify a course itinerary at short notice or decides to do so in order to take advantage of natural circumstances. The client acknowledges that information about courses provided by “Bushcraft and Survival” is given in the best of faith but that because of the variability of nature it may be reasonable to alter or modify a course and that in such circumstances it is not reasonable for “Bushcraft and Survival” to be liable for any losses consequential on such a change and that “Bushcraft and Survival”‘s liability is limited accordingly.

7. The conduct of a course

The client acknowledges that during a “Bushcraft and Survival” course he / she is required to submit to the reasonable instructions and leadership of the “Bushcraft and Survival” instructors, save that parents, teachers and those in comparable roles in respect of children must maintain control of those children, to the satisfaction of “Bushcraft and Survival” instructors. The client acknowledges that persons attending a “Bushcraft and Survival” course are entitled to expect a high standard of conduct and regard for personal well being on the part of all clients. 

For this reason the client accepts that “Bushcraft and Survival” may, in its absolute discretion and without the need to give reasons, arrange for him / her to be removed from a course, if necessary against his / her will. Circumstances in which this might occur include (without limitation) disorderly or abusive conduct; intoxication; failure of control over children; inadequacy of clothing or equipment; incapacity or inability to meet the rigours of the course. In such circumstances the client will not be entitled to a refund of monies and “Bushcraft and Survival” will not be liable for any losses so resulting. The client will on demand reimburse “Bushcraft and Survival” its reasonable costs of effecting his / her removal.

8. Liability

“Bushcraft and Survival” courses take place in the open countryside and are by their very nature not absolutely free from hazard. “Bushcraft and Survival” makes every effort to minimise risk to clients and instructs clients in the safe negotiation of such risk as may remain. Consequently, the client acknowledges that there are circumstances in which an accident could befall a client without “Bushcraft and Survival” being at fault and accepts that to that extent he / she is taking part in a “Bushcraft and Survival” course at his / her own risk.

“Bushcraft and Survival” only accepts liability for physical injury to a client that is shown to result from negligence on the part of “Bushcraft and Survival”.

The client acknowledges that other loss, damage and expense (including, without limitation, loss of money, loss or damage to clothes and possessions, losses arising on the cancellation of a booking and the expenses of delay and harm caused other than by the negligence of “Bushcraft and Survival”) howsoever arising is not the responsibility of “Bushcraft and Survival” and that “Bushcraft and Survival”‘s liability is hereby limited.

9. Complaints

In the unlikely event that a client has cause for complaint about a “Bushcraft and Survival” course, complaint should be made to a representative of “Bushcraft and Survival” during the event, in order that corrective action can, if necessary, be taken. The client acknowledges that it is unreasonable to take no action during a course but to complain later. However, should a problem not be resolved, complaint should be made in writing within 28 days. To the extent permitted by law “Bushcraft and Survival” will not be liable in respect of claims first intimated later than 28 days from the close of the relevant course.

10. Travel documents

The client is solely responsible, where necessary, for ensuring that he / she has all necessary valid travel documents.

11. Consent Form

The client acknowledges that they must sign and complete a Consent Form, which must be returned to “Bushcraft and Survival” at least Two weeks prior to the commencement of the customers course. The Consent Form will be emailed to the customer when they make final payment for their workshop, and it is also downloadable from the Downloads section of the bushcraftandsurvival.eu website. The client will be reminded to complete and return the form when they have paid their remaining course payment.

12. Changes to this agreement

“Bushcraft and Survival” reserves the right to update the Terms & Conditions at any time, without notice.
