TREK TARIK: Bushcraft & Wilderness Survival with Dave Williams


From our adventures at Ubin, St John's Island and many more, we present to you TREK TARIK! Express your interest and come pursue knowledge and character building beyond the classroom through learning expeditions. Inspired by a popular Singaporean milk tea that gets 'pulled' by its barista, TREK TARIK stretches our hearts, minds and hands to reach out into the wilderness and bring its quiet wisdom into the future. With such an appreciation of the spaces and environments around us, we seek to inspire a more sustainable future with our hands. We're also helping to fundraise for future community learning initiatives. Proceeds help cover refreshment, tools, material & facilitation costs, grow TREK TARIK, rental and build up the ground-up innovation movement.

About This Event

In collaboration with Ashton Movements and support from the nice folks from Sea Angel's, we bring you the first ever "Trek Tarik", featuring American Bushcraft instructor- Dave Williams, a lifelong naturalist with 39 years of kayaking experience and various cycling, kayaking, jungle trekking, and mountaineering expeditions. He is here to bring you, probably the most comprehensive wilderness survival training ever in Singapore.
