Course Information

This summer, Bear Grylls Survival Academy is teaming up with Woodfield House to launch the new BEAR ESSENTIALS programme.

Run over five days, young adventurers (aged 8-13yrs) are invited to attend this exciting new course which walks through Bear’s priorities of survival - with key survival techniques, first aid skills and most importantly LOTS and LOTS of fun included!

Courses are £25 per person with a bundle deal of £100 for attendance on all five days.
A wraparound facility is available for a daily £5 supplement, allowing for 09h00 drop off and 16h30 collection each day.

*A packed lunch and water bottle is required each day.
