Bear Grylls Survival Academy: Adult Survival Course
Cowdray Estate, Midhurst
Course dates: March 17-18, April 7-8, September 15-16 and September 22-23
This intense 24-hour survival experience teaches life-saving skills and attitudes such as resourceful and calm under pressure. Students have no tent and limited food and water rations, with participants expected to source food and water from streams and pools. The Cowdray Estate was chosen as a location for its varied terrain, including dense woodland, a long stretch of the Rover Rother, lakes and steep difficult ground. Bear says, “I am super excited our Survival Academy is running at Cowdray. The courses on the estate are designed to be both challenging and empowering. They require courage, determination, positivity and a ‘never give up’ attitude.” Participants must be physically fit and active.
