Teaching life-saving skills

Adult Survival Course

The Adult 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 sixteen adult participants, who must be physically fit and active.

'I am super excited our Survival Academy is running at Cowdray. The courses on the estate are designed to be both challenging and empowering. They require courage, determination, positivity and a 'never give up' attitude.
