Our Survival skills experience takes place on remote privately owned land within the Brecon Beacons National park. You will be taught essential survival skills that will enable you to create a functioning expedition camp. Using a variety of techniques you will learn how to make your own comfortable natural shelter, how to light and manage a fire, how to arrange a fire for cooking and many other wilderness skills.
On arrival your group will set up a Parachute canopy that will act as shelter and base for your stay.
Survival skills typically include:
*Emergency Shelter Building
*Friction Fire and other methods
*Finding and purifying water
*Gutting Fish / Wilderness cooking
Overnight Wild Camping option
Our overnight wild camping option can only be booked in conjunction with our Survival Skills experience – half day or full day.
For group sizes of 9 or less we have a site where we can provide Hammock & Tarp camping. For larger size groups sites are only suitable for ground level shelters, set up with Tarps and paracord.
*Communal Parachute canopy
* Evening Meal
… you will also need to bring along your own sleeping bag.
Once the camp has been set for the evening most adult only groups prefer their own privacy and the Instructor will leave the site and camp nearby. Adult groups are welcome to bring along their own drinks for the evening. You will be provided with sufficient supplies i.e. firewood, food & breakfast the next day. For groups with any under 18’s an Instructor will always be on site overnight.
To arrange a booking we require a minimum group size of four, if you do not have a minimum group size you are welcome to join one of our open events.
