24 Hour Adult and Child Survival Course with Bear Grylls Survival Academy
Take on the trials of the wild together with this 24 hour course, designed by survival expert Bear Grylls. A father himself, he’s hand-picked all the experts who run the course, so it's ideal for kids as well as adults. In the picturesque settings of the South Downs, Brecon Beacons or Dartmoor, participants will learn to navigate, build emergency shelters, stalk, protect themselves, tie knots, create rope harnesses to travel across lakes, rivers and treacherous terrain and even to skin and gut their own food. Activities in Brecon Beacons include a White Water gorge walk and a waterfall jump, whilst the South Downs offers spear-making and tree top canopy climbing. Or, why not choose the Dartmoor location for pistol shooting, grenade throwing and close quarter battle training? Courage, determination and the will to survive are all needed for this challenging course, and those who make it together will have earned a certificate as well as priceless skills.
