With the support of your Lead, you’ll have 4 days to build and run a fully functioning survival camp. You’ll have to make your own tools, you’ll have to build your shelter, you’ll have to light and maintain your fire, you’ll have to forage and you’ll have to defend your camp.
By the end of the course, you will be expected to display a good level of self-reliance in nature, including navigation, tool use, foraging, fire making, ropes and knots, camouflage and survival in hostile environments. Working as a team, building on each other’s strengths and learning from one another, have you got what it takes?
Please note that due to Covid-19 restrictions, The Hive is currently only running full-week missions.
Full itinerary coming Winter 2020.
