This challenge will test physical, mental and emotional endurance in a weekend free from the constraints of modern technology – no phone to provide GPS, no uber to get you where you need to go, no restaurant to feed you and no luxury hotel room to keep you warm at night.
With experts on hand for key skills training and advice throughout the challenge, participants will truly have the chance to go back to basics and see if they can survive the wild.
Starting from base camp on Dartmoor, participants will be briefed on the journey ahead, taught some key survival skills and then set the challenge to make it to the coast. They will need to navigate across rugged terrain, forage for food, build shelters, make an indigenous fire and improvise some river transport to make their Dartmouth destination.
Inspiring young lives
Outdoor adventure can have a massive impact on somebody's life. Especially when you are 11 and vulnerable.
The Youth Adventure Trust works with disadvantaged young people from the age of 11 until they are 14. Many of them are struggling at school, aren't able to fit in, hate being in the classroom, have no positive role model, no aspirations, or chaotic and unstable home lives. They could be young carers looking after a parent or other family member, they may be in foster care, on the brink of getting a criminal record or being excluded from school.
Their circumstances make it all too easy for these young people to make poor choices that will affect the rest of their lives. By taking them outside, we help them discover their true potential and exceed their expectations. We use outdoor adventure to inspire them and give them the hope, confidence and skills to face their personal challenges. We stop them becoming another statistic.
