View Full Version : Bushcraft courses for me
Id like to go one one but cannot afford it
Im going to ask various course places about a discount as Im disabled but Im too shy
(and you will be laughing at me as you know a lot of time Im very bold...)
So what do you suggest I say?
Depends on what manner and how severely disabled. Not that we need to know, don't say. But what to ask the schools would be very different depending on your condition. In the States there are schools that would give free courses for disabled and some that would charge extra. Again depends on the school and the disability.
If in that position I would not call up but would try to go in person so they see you are serious. Ask about the course and see if they fit your needs. If you are satisfied both you and they can work together then ask for help with the cost.
"I really want to learn from you, for I feel you are the best qualified. However, I would like to ask if there is any way to work out a discount on the fee."
Or how ever you feel comfortable in asking. You might even offer to work off part of the fee.
I'd suggest you sign up for this weekend.It will cost you very little.http://www.bushcraftuk.com/community/showthread.php?t=16863

i have already invited you to the weekend that bushwacker bob recommends. i run my own school and have experience working with people with various physical and mental disabilities.
please pm me again so we can discuss confidentially the nature of your disabilty and what extra support you would need to enable you to get the most out of a weekend in the woods.
Tengu. PM me and will will talk. Check my link and see what you think
Tengu, get yourself down to Waynes Woods. I can probably arrange to pick you up if no one is coming from the west.
