Survival Camp

A warm welcome to you on your first steps to booking your place on the course.

The Wild Edge survival camp is a great way to learn an array of exciting new skills, along with the chance to make new friends while working through each challenge.

The days  will start with an intro from all of us at Wild Edge, going through the challenges that lie ahead. Explaining who will be taking you for each activity. This will be combined through the day with hot or cold drinks and lunch.

Some of the challenges to put your skills to will be helping you gain confidence in the outdoors. These will range from first aid training, navigation and expedition  skills, archery training with work on improvement and bush craft skills so you have a greater understanding of how to use what is around you.

Each student attending will receive a coveted Wild Edge Head Over on arrival at camp in which they will keep and take home to remind them of the day.

We all cant wait to meet you on our next event,

James and the Wild Edge team

“Alexander, his parents, and friends had a really great time at the Wild Edge Challenge Party and haven’t stopped talking about it! They loved the archery and making their tents, but the whole day was fun and completely different to any party they have been to before. So thank you for making it special and please thank young James too as he was also brilliant.”
