Team Building (1.5 days 09:00am – Mid-day the next day)
Teams and groups are put through a school of tuition by the on site instructor/s for the first half of the day. After learning about the principals of survival, teams are dispatched to put their news skills to the test by setting up camp. Preparing their own food, building their own shelter, filtering and purifying their own water and starting their own fires. Teams must complete the tasks successfully in order to survive the night ahead. Equipment will be scattered around the site and teams must scavenge what they can find to improve their chances of survival until the following day. The winning group will be selected by the lead instructor on the day. The losers however, will partake in a bush tucker trial-like forfeit which will remain a secret until the day so to not spoil the surprise of what may be in store.
