Would you have what it takes to survive? The “Survival Zone” will teach keen adventurers everything they need to know about self-rescue through activities and talks. Fire-lighting, emergency shelter building, navigating harsh terrain, hunting and stalking, rope work and knife skills are just a few of the techniques which will be taught over the course of the weekend.

The “Training Ground” is a dynamic area within the Survival Zone where aspiring survivors will be put through their paces in a range of survival challenges and obstacles.
