Welcome to under the canopy Cornwall

Based in our home of Cornwall we have an ideal base camp at Rettorick Mill from here we can run many of our courses, clubs and parties in our own private and secluded woodland. 

Here we can teach the initial skills you need before progressing to more extreme and adventurous expeditions and multi day courses

We are also a stones throw away from the coast and a short drive from Bodmin moor and Dartmoor where we run our more advanced courses

We are fully mobile and will work with you from the initial recce , planning and execution of any event that you wish to hold.
