Teaching life-saving skills
Primal Survival Course
The Adult Primal Survival course is an intense 24-hour survival experience teaching life-saving skills and attitudes such as resourcefulness and calm under pressure. Students have no tent, and limited water and food rations so the pressure is on to source food and water locally from streams and pools. This course is limited to 16 adult participants, who must be physically fit and active.Find out more
18 Hour Course
Wild Camp Survival
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.
This course is limited to 16 adult participants, who must be physically fit and active.
If you are looking for a unique outdoor survival experience for your team, your family or friends then please get in touch to collaborate with us and the Bear Grylls Survival Academy to design an event to satisfy your needs and interests.
Together, we can curate the perfect mixture of adventure, exploration, discovery, learning and excitement. With plenty of outdoor space here on the estate we can offer fun team building days undertaking a range of survival themed challenges, we'll combine them in a package tailored just for your group.Activities Menu
