What is Bushcraft Insurance?

Bushcraft insurance covers instructors, clubs and organisations carrying out bushcraft, forest and survival skills. This could be for a range of incidents, such as injuries or damage to people, property or equipment.

Why do Bushcraft organisations and coaches need insurance?

Someone might get injured during one of your activities, your equipment might be stolen, you may be accused of doing something wrong, or you might be travelling abroad – there are all kinds of reasons you might need bushcraft insurance. Also, many landowners, local authorities and schools require a minimum level of insurance.

What kind of bushcraft insurance do I need?

This very much depends upon what you do and the scale of your organisation. 

Public liability insurance for bushcraft

Public Liability Insurance is a good starting point, designed to cover if you injure someone or damage their property or if someone you are responsible for is injured. 

Employers’ liability insurance for bushcraft

If you employ anyone or have volunteers, you will also need Employers Liability Insurance. Instructors may consider the need for Professional Indemnity insurance or Indemnity for Instruction.
