We are a team of military veterans, outdoor instructors and subject experts on a mission to build teamwork, strength of character, resilience, determination and the ability to overcome any obstacle in any situation. Our skills include; bushcraft & survival courses, corporate team building events, school trips, mountain expeditions and treks throughout the UK and abroad. We are proud to be recognised as a leading provider of outdoor activities in Shropshire and the West Midlands.

In 2010 having recently finished military service in some of the most dangerous and demanding conditions in the world, a small group of ex-servicemen began to run small bushcraft and survival courses for those suffering with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Wild Survivor

Today, Wild Survivor has grown through positive referrals to become an team of military veterans, subject experts and outdoor instructors using their extensive experiences throughout the world to teach and inspire individuals in a wide range of skills including; survival courses, team-building, school trips, boot camps and staffing to activity centres throughout the UK.

We only work with small groups to ensure that everyone benefits from good time spent with our highly experienced instructors and leave with a positive learning experience.

As a company that was founded by veterans and relies on former military personnel to deliver our authentic and engaging outdoor activities in Shropshire and beyond, we are also proud to be committed to the Armed Forces Covenant.
