Commando 3hr survival experience: £45 (Available Saturday 3-6pm and Sunday 2-5pm)
This intensive 3 hour Commando course will teach you many of the essentials of survival including fire making, water gathering, hunting, navigation and food required to survive. You will require warm clothing, rugged footwear, hat and gloves and above all the ability to think ‘ out of the box’. You are going to be taught how threads of your clothing can be the key to sustaining a fire, how the surrounding environment can provide enough calories to survive and how to ensure the water you drink is clean. What we require from you is an open mind in order that you can embrace the array of techniques, food and skills you will be taught. Being a Commando is a way of life and if embraced it will aid you every day in the tasks you undertake.
