*A fantastic Father's Day Present!*
Your family have gone hiking deep in the backwoods. After following the trail for miles you suddenly realise you're lost. You make the decision to settle in for the night hoping that you can find your way home in the morning. Morning comes and you haven't found any paths or landmarks that can help you back to the trail. Your only option is to survive long enough to attract someone's attention and be rescued. With only the limited contents of your day hiking bags you will need to work together as a family to survive. This challenge is based on true accounts of lost hikers.
Your Family are set a series of fun challenges including:
- Shelter building.
- Fire lighting.
- Foraging, hunting, trapping and fishing.
- Safe water treatment.
- How to attract attention and signal for help.
Our staff will give you instruction on how to complete each challenge. For example, you will need to make a successful trap before you are given meat or fish. You will need to make a fire to cook it on. We are here to help and support you. It's important that there is a challenge but it is fun too. If you need help or advice we will provide this where necessary.
