As a father of three young boys I love sharing my survival techniques and going on family adventures together. It is not only exciting and fun but teaches them useful life and outdoor skills and what it really means to be able to look after yourself when the chips are down.Bear Grylls
Designed to inspire fathers and sons, mothers and daughters alike, this 24-hour outdoor adventure has been created by Bear Grylls and his close team of experts, and is delivered by a range of hand-picked instructors. In parent and child teams, you’ll learn Bear’s famous survival techniques: how to build and light a fire, how to navigate at night, foraging for grubs and rodents, water purification, building a shelter, extreme weather survival and river crossings, and the best ways to use a knife for survival. On day two, you’ll put these skills into action, following Bear’s ethos of self-rescue, by crossing difficult terrain out of captivity. It’s an opportunity to bring family members together through a truly memorable and fun experience.
These are just some of the many activities you may undertake during the ’Wilderness Survival Family Adventure'

From the initial meeting at the lodge, to the final goodbyes in the parking lot, Jake and Dan were exceptional leaders and instructors. My 9 year old daughter and I did the 24 hour Family course in The Catskills, NY. We learned so many new skills that we cannot wait to practice on our own. My daughter has been raving about it since we got home, and immediately asked when the next adventure was. I highly recommend this for anyone who's has a child that enjoys the outdoors and camping. What an amazing experience for both myself and my daughter. Thank you again Jake, Dan, and the rest of the Bear Grylls team for such a wonderful experience!
