Scouts & Youth Groups
We run a range of courses that are ideal for Scouts and youth groups, including those who wish to develop survival skills in preparation for attempting the prestigious Scouts Association ‘Survival Skills Activity Badge’.
Our courses and units cover all the skills that you need to survive in the outdoors including knife skills, essential first aid, how to build shelter, starting a fire and using signals to get help. You’ll also learn the essentials of packing a survival kit, so that you are always prepared.
Every course is run by highly experienced and professionally trained survival experts who are fully insured and fully vetted to work with young people.
