Overnight 2 Day Survival Camp
Rough Itinerary and details:
Saturday morning we run through the theory behind survival introducing ‘The Big 5,’ before moving onto equipment and ‘The Rule of 3.’ En route to our destination, we’ll touch on bush navigation and bush tucker and once we arrive, we’ll set up our shelter for the night utilising natural materials and run through the priorities for the rest of the day.
Sunday will see us building our knife skills, how to make basic camp tools, basic traps and hunting tools, tracking skills, water and hygiene as well as fire craft.
Food over the weekend will be sufficient for survival with extras provided by foraging.
Survival Kit – Includes survival tarp, mat, water bottle, ferro rod, reflector, rope plus a heap of bits and bobs that are super useful in a survival situation.
Food – Enough food will be provided to maintain strength but definitely we will be looking to forage for food along the way
