“24 hours in the wild is a fantastic opportunity for young people to grow into more resilient, flexible and confident individuals. It could be the catalyst that triggers motivation to develop a growth mindset, where they begin to see every challenge as a learning experience. We know that students need more than exam results in life after school – they need grit, willpower and a positive attitude; this experience will certainly help them develop those traits.”
Jackie Beere OBE, Teacher Trainer, Life Coach
24hrs IN THE WILD
Exposed to the great outdoors armed only with sleeping bags and bivouac covers for shelter, students will experience the wonders of a proper sunrise while all the time being encouraged to reflect on their own lives, relationships, attitudes and future aspirations.
We aim to guide every participant on their own personal journey while encouraging them to work together with others to develop essential skills in team building and communication.
With no access to man-made objects such as mobile phones or any artificial light, and only the natural landscape for company, this challenging yet extremely rewarding experience is one that shows participants what they are truly capable of.
In today’s increasingly technological world, we find that this is something that surprises and delights those that take part in equal measure.
