About Bear Grylls Survival Academy

Bear Grylls Survival AcademyBear Grylls Survival Academy was launched in the UK in 2012 with the intensive 5 day Survival in the Highlands Course in Scotland. Since then, the UK Academy has also launched a 24 Hour Family Course aimed at parents and children, a 24 Hour Adult Course and Ultimate Team Building courses for the corporate market. Due to the ever popular family courses, we have also introduced a kids only survival day which are being rolled out over the school holidays. We even have a fun, half day adventure course in North Wales. All courses have proven to be extremely popular and are now selling out fast.

In July 2013, Bear announced the launch of BGSA in the USA, offering a rare chance for a lucky few outdoor enthusiasts across the country to learn his extreme survival techniques.

The first US Academy was launched in the Catskill Mountain region, a wild undulating area of New York State. Shortly after, academies were launched in Yosemite, California and The Colorado Rockies.

Bear Grylls has become known around the world as the most recognized face of survival and outdoor adventure. With the success of  Get Out Alive, Escape from Hell and the brand new Running Wild with Bear Grylls TV series plus seven seasons of Man Vs Wild/Born Survivor experience, and the many skills learned from his time with the British Reserve Special Forces, he is proud to have launched Bear Grylls Survival Academy. The Academy has been designed by Bear himself and the courses will be run by his close team of highly trained experts.
