Welcome to UKSN - One of the UK's fastest growing online bushcraft, adventure and survival based organisations. Start your adventure today...
The UKSN was created to join people together, not only in time of crisis but in everyday life.
Unfortunately technology is rapidly removing key skills we need to survive - skills our ancestors relied upon in everyday life. We are becoming disconnected from our fragile environment. Our children are becoming obsessed with machines and they are not being taught about the wonder that is all around them. We are ever reliant on the Government and not preparing for simple everyday issues, let alone large scale ones.
The UKSN will open you eyes in a unique way. We are not about end of the world scenarios, scaremongering or conspiracy - although it does come up in conversation occasionally. We are about learning and sharing knowledge. We help you to continue your journey, be it through adventure, survival, prepping, bushcraft or even simply camping. We are unbiased and dont allow religion or politics to rule thought.

Where do we reside online?
The majority of UKSN is centered around our main FACEBOOK group. This is where most of UKSN members 'hang out'. You will be able to read posts, interact with members, join in discussion, seek advice and check out our calendar of events. You can even on occasion catch us live streaming.
We additionally operate our paid members group called SN1. This is in development and much more will be happening here in the future. Occasionally we run competitions within the SN1 group for SN1 members only.
The Hub is essentially our FORUM and CHARTER platform. Charters ('Local' private UKSN groups) can host their own pages within the HUB, advertise local events, training, hold discussions, chat and more. Its a great alternative to FACEBOOK and perfect those who love forums.
We have a website which can be accessed by visiting www.uksn.org.uk - This is full of key information about UKSN and even includes an ever updating Instagram gallery.
We operate our own online store that sells tried, tested and recommended products. We offer a 12% discount on all of our products to SN1 members which means membership pays for itself in no time! The shop can be found by CLICKING HERE

I have joined - Now what?
Sit back and wait for your main email confirmation. This can take up to a week, if not longer in busy periods. In reality you will normally receive within 48 hours. The email will supply you with all your key information including:
- SN1 number - This is essentially your UKSN callsign
- Links to your digital membership & radio pack
Your membership pack will generally be posted out within 72 hours but this depends on a variety of factors. Usually you can expect to receive within a few weeks of signing up.
If you have chosen an ELITE tier or higher you will be sent your Paracord Bracelet automatically but separate from other membership items. This is because they are hand made to order.
To ensure you get the closest bracelet size - Simply measure around the wrist - Dont add extra!!
