It's the ultimate adventure: surviving in the wild with only your new-found skills to keep you out of trouble. You'll learn a new awareness of the great outdoors on our 2-day course, set in some of the UK's most beautiful landscapes. Under the watchful eye of a forces trained instructor, you'll set snares for food, send up a distress signal, carry out basic first aid and much, much more.
You will spend two days being taught all aspects of survival and safety techniques and sleeping in tents and shelters. By the end of the course you will have covered subjects such as navigation and safety, edible plants, improvised weapons, fishing techniques, water purification, distress signals, fire lighting by friction, shelter and food preparation. This is a fantastic experience for all outdoors enthusiasts. Programmes vary depending on the location chosen.
