Bear Grylls Survival Academy

The world’s most recognizable face of survival and outdoor adventure is bringing
the ultimate class in self-rescue skills to Snow Mountain Ranch again this summer!

This is a rare opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to learn Bear’s extreme survival techniques through “the most challenging but empowering survival courses on the planet.”

Participants will learn improvised wilderness first aid, emergency shelter builds, harsh terrain navigation by day and night without a map or compass, rope skills for crossing difficult terrain, survival knife skills, fire lighting, foraging for food by setting snares and traps, and dynamic self rescue techniques in this intense, 24 hour course.

Each adult course is limited to 12 participants, ages 18+. Each registration for the family course is for one adult and two children ages 10 – 17 years. For more information on the course, visit the Bear Grylls website.

Courses will be held at Snow Mountain Ranch on the following dates:

  • June 11 – 12  Only 3 spots remaining!
  • July 9 – 10
  • July 23 – 24  Family Course
  • August 13 – 14
  • September 10 – 11

These classes are filling up quickly, so don’t wait to reserve your spot! Registration can be found here.

Some of my toughest times have lasted for less than 24 hours yet have had the greatest impact on me. And that’s the goal on the 24 hour course: push yourself and learn life-saving skills and attitudes such as resourcefulness and calm under pressure. It’s intense but has proved itself so rewarding” -Bear Grylls.
