Bear Grylls Survival Camps –
Germany & Ireland
A character building challenge that starts to become a bit more serious, and campers are now faced with tougher obstacles, group solving problems, creative riddles and more demanding activities. After having reviewd the basics of the Outdor Adventure Principles, campers will take off into a route where many unexpected situations will force them to foster their team building, communication and organizational skills. By the end of it all, no doubt they will be full of mud, tired and perhaps a bit hungry, but nonetheless, full of vitality and having conquered a wonderfull feeling of self achievement.
“My son Dylan came back home as excited as never before. He enjoyed the program so much, he does not stop talking about his camp experience and he already started organizing to go back next summer along with his friends from school. We, as parents, have noticed a meaningful positive change in Dylan’s behavior and approach to life in a day to day basis, and for such reason we are grateful we found such a program. Keep doing what you do best! “

From orienteering, flora and fauna identification, to shelter crafting and fire making, all the way to useful knots, traps, scavenger tracking and of course lots of obstacle crossings. Without a doubt, after the 2 week program, the campers will be exhausted but at the same time, totally satisfied!

In cooperation with the Bear Grylls Survival Academy and our certified coaches you will discover nature and face new adventures. Learn unique survival skills and techniques and take every challenge together with your team. In the end every participant will receive a certificate as “Bear Grylls Survivor”. We encourage campers to be actively involved in all activities by applying our “challenge by choice” policy, so that nobody has to do anything he/she really does not want to.
