The Survival Academy is an exciting opportunity to escape the rush of life and learn necessary life skills. Our group bonded instantly and had a memorable 24 hours hiking, tracking, practicing the art of fire starting, building shelters and surviving in the woods. Just the right mix of challenge and comfort, the 24-hour experience is perfect for people looking to dip their toe into outdoor survival. Immediately upon surviving the weekend, I started dreaming of attending one of the longer, more intense programs!
I found the course absolutely amazing. I was pushed to limits that I didn't know I could reach. The Instructors were both friendly and very helpful as well as supportive. I think It was a great opportunity to learn more about Survival and I also found that you make some great friends while on the course.
The 18 hour survival course is an absolute must for anyone starting out 'wild camping', or like most of us that attended, love the outdoors and want to try something new and challenge yourself. It's run by great instructors who have a big background in survival situations. After completing the course i now feel a lot more confident in myself in different situations from lighting a fire to building my shelter for the night or understanding the water purification processes. With the Astro navigation information and demonstration I feel pretty confident in using the techniques myself. We were a small group of 5 and had the bonus of a second instructor joining us for a short time. All 5 of us came away and straight away book a lads trip away to put some of our newly taught skills to the test! Massive thank you to Richard and John
“From the start of our dealings with Rachel and the Bear Grylls Team I knew we were in good hands. On the day, they took charge of our large group and immediately made everyone feel like they wanted to get involved – which is not an easy job! Thanks again guys, lots of laughs and great memories made”
