Youth Wilderness Survival Challenge

Den Building at Hamsterley Forest. North East England

 

 

 

Your light aircraft has crash landed in dense forest hundreds of miles from civilisation. It is bitterly cold and wet and there are grizzly bears in the forest; you need fire and shelter to get you through till the rescue teams arrive. How will you survive?

You scavenge in the wreckage and find one or two things that might be useful. Solve the problems and stay alive! At the end of each stage the activity leaders will check to see how you are doing and at the end of the session you will discover how many of you made it through.

The activity leader, Bruce Ferguson, is qualified through the Institute for Outdoor Learning to teach bushcrafts to groups and has been involved in bushcrafts and teaching woodland skills for over 30 years. All leaders are DBS checked.
