mission overview
 

A REAL-LIFE SURVIVAL SCENARIO WHERE YOU’LL GET TO PUT YOUR SURVIVAL SKILLS TO THE TEST... 


Faced with REAL challenges, you’ll have to think and learn fast! With the support of your Lead, you’ll have 2 days to build and run a fully functioning survival camp. You’ll have to make your own tools, you’ll have to build your shelter, you’ll have to light and maintain your fire, you’ll have to forage and you’ll have to defend your camp. 

By the end of the course, you will be expected to display a good level of self-reliance in nature, including navigation, tool use, foraging, fire making, ropes and knots, camouflage and survival in hostile environments. Working as a team, building on each other’s strengths and learning from one another, have you got what it takes?
