“Whenever you do something beyond your ‘comfort zone’ and realize you are still standing, the more you will believe that the impossible is actually possible.”Bear Grylls
Have you got what it takes to survive in the wild? At the Bear Grylls Survival Wild Camp, you’ll spend the night in the untamed forest of Cabin Woods, sleeping out under the stars in a shelter you’ll build yourself. This overnight course teaches Bear’s own survival techniques, such as making a fire, building an emergency survival shelter, and water purification. You’ll learn to catch what you eat by identifying animal runs and laying traps, handling and preparing wild game such as fish and rabbits, and foraging for edible food. By night, using astro navigation techniques and employing night vision goggles, you’ll make your way through the unforgiving woodland terrain, developing your skills in the art of wilderness stalking while learning how to protect yourself from attack.

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
