The Survival Zone will be ran by the amazing team at Survival Wisdom. They'll be delivering fun engaging workshops that aim to make sure you're safe for that big adventure. They've also teamed up with guys a Banwell Scouts to deliver a range of bush craft sessions for the whole family.
SOME OF THE WORKSHOPS
"YOU'RE NOT A SURVIVOR UNTILL YOU'RE RESCUED"
This is a workshop on how to react and promote your own recovery in an emergency.
Whether it’s a medical emergency, you’ve strayed into a hostile environment or come across a major incident when travelling, what’s the quickest way you can get help?
Richard the Founder of Survival Wisdom, a former training manager of the UK Defences SERE training (survival school) and now a Fellow and Safety trainer, for the Royal Geographical Society with IBG, will deliver a workshop on some common threats and emergencies, how to cope and how to promote your rescue and recovery anywhere in the world.
ADVENTURE WATER PREPARDNESS
Carriage, preparation and storage of water in an adventure travel situation is always challenging. Water in a survival situation is one of the highest priorities and without it, normal body functions such as thermoregulation and brain function simply fail and you won’t survive.
From experience drinking contaminated water is a game changer as far as travelling is concerned, so this workshop will give you the bottom line and dispel any myths!
Chris a former military Survival trainer for 15 years, will help you plan and deliver some top tips for keeping you hydrated in some of the most extreme environments in the world
FIRE-LIGHTING AND SHELTER BUILDING SESSIONS
How are your basic survival skills? If you find yourself in the wild for the night could you make a shelter and start a fire?
These fun fire lighting and shelter building workshops are suitable for festival goers of all ages and they're not to be missed.
You'll have a load of fun trying to spark up nature's TV and you never know, the skills you pick up might just save your life one day!
