Corporate days

Ditch the office clothes and prepare for an adventure.

For reward days, teambuilding sessions, or client outings with a difference, we run a variety of themed sessions with activities to develop teamwork, problem solving, communication, trust, creative thinking and more.

Without a flat white or frappuccino in sight, no Google or YouTube to help, it’s time to move outside your comfort zone, embrace the outdoors and learn some new skills.

There are lots of opportunities for developing team skills, and we also aim to have a little bit of fun.

Challenge Days

Challenge days are day-long exercises incorporating a degree of instruction in new skills with scenario-based challenges. There are lots of opportunities for developing team skills, and we also aim to have a little bit of fun.

The importance of water cannot be overestimated – we cannot survive for more than a few days without it. If you find yourself stranded in the wilderness, getting water that is clean enough to drink will be one of your top priorities!

This covers:

• the importance of clean water
• water purification techniques

Starting, using and extinguishing a fire safely is one of the most fundamental human skills, yet it is one with which most of us are unfamiliar.

It can also require persistence!

• Extinguishing a fire and responsible use

Shelter building

Finding or making a shelter is one of the three elements of the basic Survival Triangle. Almost everyone has made a den in the woods, so how hard can it be to make a safe shelter that will keep you warm and dry, potentially overnight? 

This covers:

• The function of shelter
• L
ocation choice
• Designs of shelter
• Building materials
• Tool use
• Safe construction methods
• Simple knots and fastenings

Orientation Challenge

Getting from place to place successfully is a basic requirement of daily life, but today most of us rely entirely on technological aids to find our way around. But with such reliance on mobile technology, what can we do when it fails (poor signal, low battery, dropped and broken, or lost)?

Being able to use a map with confidence is a crucial life skill, and can give people the reassurance to explore their world. It also develops spatial reasoning, communication and team skills. Our orientation training is delivered by qualified Mountain Leaders and covers a complete range of navigational skills.

Course content

During the course we look at:

• Understanding maps – scales, rights of way, grid references
• Measuring distances – timing and pacing
• Using a compass – map orientation, taking and walking a bearing
• Following a bearing in poor visibility
• Contour recognition – understanding the shape of the land
• Route-finding skills – using natural features, hazard avoidance
• Route planning, as well as
• An overview of how to best use smartphone GPS/maps when available!

Course duration: 1 day
