Survival in the Catskills

Can you take on the Catskills wilderness, Bear-style?

From your wilderness base camp, in the heart of coyote, bear and bobcat country, you’ll learn Bear Grylls’ own survival techniques, delivered by an elite company of instructors selected by Bear and his crew.



The family survival course was fantastic and is a weekend we will not forget for a long time. Boundaries were pushed and I could see my children gaining in confidence as every hour passed. I would highly recommend this course to anyone! (24Hr Family Course, UK)

The Bear Grylls Adventure in Victoria Falls was one of the best experiences of my life. It was an action packed, adventure challenging you just about every hour of the day. Guides Paul, Dean and Nigel were world class and made the experience that much more memorable and fun, gladly imparting their knowledge and skills and going far beyond what was required to create a great experience for all of us. Thanks to all! (Survival in Africa course)

Incredible experience. It definitely "hurt a little", but I would not have changed a thing! The instructors (Josh, Jake) were outstanding - knowledgeable, supportive, and approachable. The course is harder than you think, but you come back stronger, smarter, and with a renewed perspective on what's important in life. It's one thing to think you can survive if you have to, it's another thing to put it into practice. I have no doubt that I could after this experience. (Survival in the Catskills Course)

If I had to name the course in one word it would be: EMOTIONAL ...... Every feeling, sad, happy, cold, wet, hungry & tired all into one BUT wouldn't have changed it for the world I'll be talking about the whole experience for a long time (Survival in the Highlands Course)

Just got back from a 24hr adult survival course at Brecon, and although I am battered and bruised from head to toe, I feel fantastic! Thank you for the most terrifying, exhilarating, wonderful 24hrs I've ever had. (24Hr Adult Course, UK)
