DESIGNED TO GIVE STUDENTS A WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE AND OUTLOOK ON LIFE.
The Really Wild Survival Academy is the pinnacle of outdoor learning. Students learn the skills needed to survive and thrive outdoors in spring summer, autumn and winter, with winter being our most popular season for learning.
As the student’s progress through our 3 different courses; introductory, intermediate and advanced levels, students have the opportunity to demonstrate a progression of learning and personal development that is second to none. The courses are also a tremendous addition to a DofE programme making young people better and safer outdoors in every respect.
The Survival Academy plugs perfectly into our Expeditions programme where the students can test their skills and build on them anywhere in the world! This foundation of exceptional learning is the backbone to what we do and will support any person into becoming a responsible and effective practitioner in whatever field they choose to enter.
Students develop their bush craft and survival skills to an extremely high standard. On completion of these courses, students will be equipped with the knowledge, attitude and skills necessary to survive and thrive in even the most challenging of situations and environments. This applies equally to the outdoors as it does to other aspects of the students’ lives. Students can also certify in being able to independently use a knife, saw and an axe, further adding to their personal development and skill.
These courses can include and are not limited to:
