Wow, what a fantastic weekend of survival training!
It all started with an early Saturday morning journey down to deepest, darkest Surrey(!) We hiked into the forest, where we then had to build shelters out of branches, leaves and anything else on the forest floor to sleep under that night. Purified lake water wasn’t the tastiest drink, but needs must when in the wild. Throughout the weekend, we were taught several different methods of starting fires; tracking and navigating without a compass; how to set traps to catch birds, fish and small animals; as well as gutting, skinning and cooking rabbits and pigeons for our evening meal!
The whole experience was amazing, everyone enjoyed it and we all came away with new skills.
