Below is an example of what you and your friend and family could be doing:
After an initial brief and instructional session, the group must construct a camp, prepare a meal and administer themselves for 1 night. The test of their abilities is the last 12 hours when they have to sleep in their own shelter over night. This course is only for groups of 5 or more people.
The group will be taught basic survival techniques including fire lighting, shelter construction and cooking methods, initial instruction on the safe use of cutting tools, outdoor hygiene & etiquette is provided. Due to the ever changing British weather, different materials are provided to suit the conditions.
The course works by setting a number of goals and skills to be mastered. The instructors will give clear demonstrations on fire lighting, shelter construction, the collection and purification of water and cooking the food provided. After each demonstration it is up to the group to practise and perfect the technique.
As always, our courses are designed to be fun, instructive and safe. All techniques will be demonstrated with safety in mind. These courses are not designed to test the physical resilience of the participants, but to increase their knowledge and experience. We tailor the courses to suit participants’ abilities and the weather.
