“Inside us all, just waiting to be tested, is a better, bolder, braver version of who we think we are.” — Bear Grylls
Our half day and full day Bear Grylls courses are amazing, dynamic, both physically and mentally challenging and above all, fun. However, if you really want to challenge, test and take your team to the next level, our Grit Factor 3, Bespoke Training Events will meet the brief!
‘Anytime, any place and anywhere’ is our motto and almost everything goes. At the Bear Grylls Survival Academy, we believe that true adventure in real-life scenarios and situations, can bring out the best in your team. There’s no better way to see what your team is made of than in an extreme environment or during an extreme activity or experience. Whether that’s surviving for 24 hours on an uninhabited island, navigating across Dartmoor at night or engaging in an adrenaline-fueled activity day Bear-Grylls-style. If it’s extreme adventure you want then we can facilitate super high ropes courses across 200ft gorges, high cliff top abseils and rappels and we will engage in the use of typical Bear Grylls transportation including Argo’s, Land Rovers, fast RIBS and of course helicopters. But don’t expect a tourist trip, we throw people out of fast-moving RIBS and take the doors off of all our helicopters – we find it’s better having guests standing on the skids!
Here at BGSA we have the experience and skill base to facilitate these dynamic, high energy and high-adrenaline-fueled events. Following your brief, our team of instructors will put together the perfect event. All of our lead instructors are ex-forces, mountaineers and adventurers in their own right and in they have worked with Bear on location all over the world, acting as safety supervisors and looking after the cast and crew of the shows when they are in extreme locations, undertaking breathtaking extreme activities!
Tell us where you want to go, what you want to do, what your team wants to achieve and your budget; and we will put together the sort of team building event money can’t buy! Oh, and it may hurt a little….
