Course Information


A combination of survival skills and adventure tasks that will put families to the test

"As a father of three young boys I love sharing my survival techniques and going on family adventures together. It is not only exciting and fun but teaches them useful life and outdoor skills and what it really means to be able to look after yourself when the chips are down"

Designed to inspire fathers and sons, mothers and daughters alike, this 24-hour outdoor adventure has been created by Bear Grylls and his close team of experts, and is delivered by a range of hand-picked instructors not only in Dartmoor across the unforgiving Moors but at other locations across the UK. Each location has their own challenges of woodland, heath and water but here, In your parent and child teams, you’ll learn Bear’s famous survival techniques: how to build and light a fire, how to navigate at night, foraging, water purification, building a shelter, extreme weather survival and river crossings, and the best ways to use a knife for survival.

Dartmoor, South West
The unforgiving but famously beautiful Dartmoor National Park landscape can be harsh, and has difficult terrain including rivers, woodlands, steep ascents to the many tors, and undulating countryside, as well as its own micro-climate. It is used by Britain’s elite Royal Marine Commandos for training exercises, due to the demands of the environment in both winter and summer conditions.

These items will all help you to survive! Please note, all of the clothing and equipment that you bring must be appropriate to the environment and the time of year. This is just a guide and you may not require all the kit. Your instructors will let you know what to take out into the wilderness on arrival-any extra kit can be secured at base camp.

…and don't forget a bag full of positive attitude!
