Imagine your students were put in a survival situation in the Australian bush, would they survive? Would they know what to do? Now your school can participate in comprehensive and realistic survival training for a range of potential emergencies and natural disasters which may happen to any individual.
Over a week students can learn up to 135 survival skills! Our Survival Camps introduce students to comprehensive and realistic survival training for a range of potential emergencies and natural disasters. This camp creates an immense feeling of satisfaction and achievement and students come away with a different perspective on their capabilities and outlook on life.
Our survival camp requires students to analyse all aspects of their day to day living. Working as part of a team, they will train at various remote forest survival sites and learn the four main aspects of survival;
Students learn the value of being able to make a shelter in the bush, quickly and safely with a storm rising over the horizon. Students are taught how to use natural materials to construct rough shelters which will keep them insulated and dry, a key factor of survival when removed from civilization.
Knowing where to find water & how to covert it into fresh drinking water is a vital skill, without it the body will only survive for three days! Students practice finding water, making filtration devices and sterilisation techniques to sustain themselves for a day at the water survival site.
Our professionally trained staff guide each group through the Mary Valley area, educating students about what is edible and what to avoid. The groups then go on to practice a range of campfire cooking techniques to cook their own meals.
Each group is taught how to promote their chances of rescue. Students will learn how to build beacons, signal using morse code and UHF radios. Basic remote area first aid techniques and search and rescue methods are covered in a realistic mock plane-crash rescue scenario.
Our belief is that too many victims are caught in natural disasters because they don’t know what to do. During our Survival Camp, students learn and practice how to handle a bushfire, raging river, tsunami and plane crash scenario. At the end of each scenario, groups evaluate their performance under pressure.
The extremity of each survival camp can be tailored to the requirements of your school group. Alternative rescue and disaster scenarios can be covered according to the priorities or topics relevant to each school.
