Survival Weekend Experience By Torelle Pillay

Posted by Forest Project on June 26, 2014 at 6:20 AM Comments comments (0)

The survival weekend was a fun and adventurous couple of days, the experience made me feel independent and proud.

 

 

I learnt a lot of things on the weekend such as how to filter water, navigational skills, shelter building and more.

The fun parts of the weekend wasn’t just that we got to meet Bear Grylls and Steve Backshall but all the other things we had to do by ourselves, like preparing and cooking our own food, building raft’s and socializing with all the other people there.

At the end of the day the survival weekend was a fantastic event that brought everybody together

10/10   Would come again

The Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, with fellow adventurer Steve Backshall, presenter of Deadly 60, dropped in to Pinewood Scout Centre on sunday 11th may 2014 morning 

 

The visit was part of the Bear in the Air as the Chief Scout meets and inspires young people. 70 Croydon Cubs were taking part in their Chief Scouts Silver Award day and 40 scouts were linking with Croydon Forestry school and undertaking a survival camp.

 

Bear watched as Scouts gutted fish and stuffed them with potatoes to cook them in newspaper in the embers of fires the scouts had lit themselves.

 

Whilst the cubs took part in Climbing, Archery, Shooting, Raft Building and Kayaking on the site.
