The Course

Taking place at our survival skills training camp in Elterwater, you’ll learn all of the basic techniques needed to survive in the wild. Our experienced instructors will teach you such tips and tricks like how to light a fire from just a spark and how to build your own natural shelter – using only what the forest has to offer you. As well as this, you’ll undergo a brief lesson regarding navigation – picking up on valuable skills that will allow you to determine where is best to construct your shelter. You may also identify the tracks of small animals, allowing you to properly seek out food.

Upon reporting for duty, you’ll be equipped with all the equipment needed. Please be aware that you will be checked for symptoms of the Neurosal Mortis Virus. Any person found to possess any signs of the virus will be immediately presented to Government officials.
