Embrace the inner survivor at the Bear Grylls Survival Academy with courses designed by the famed adventurer and professional wild-man! U.S. Academies have recently launched in the Catskills Mountains, California’s Sierra Nevada and Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, all with terrain including woodland, rivers, gorges and a challenging mountainous environment. Involving a combination of remote land/water survival and adventure tasks, four-day and 24-hour adult, family and team-building courses provide the opportunity to learn Bear’s dynamic approach to self-rescue and in a demanding and empowering adventure experience. Stay overnight in bush shelter and gain abilities such as river crossings, water purification, fire building, building emergency shelters, navigate harsh terrain by day and night, rope skills, crossing difficult terrain and survival knife skills amongst a myriad of other wild skills; and of course Bear’s famous Gross Eat challenge! Bear warns… ‘It may hurt a little’.
