Bear Grylls Survival Academy

Experience with your stay at NRMA Parks and Resorts.

NRMA Parks and Resorts have exclusively partnered with the Bear Grylls Survival Academy to bring your kids SHIPWRECKED, an action-packed 4-part survival and adventure program!

Based on the legendary adventures of Bear Grylls and operated by an elite team of survival experts, SHIPWRECKED aims to take kids out of their comfort zones with fun, challenging and interactive activities and obstacles surrounded by nature.

Not only will kids build on their confidence, self-esteem, and social skills – they’ll learn how to think like a true survivor, all while having a blast and making new friends!

The SHIPWRECKED story. How it all began…

All supplies have been washed ashore, including the map you need to navigate your way home. To make matters worse, the map has been torn into 4 pieces by a lightning strike and is now scattered across the island. We need you to abandon the ship and find all 4 parts of the map to get everyone home safely. To do this, you’ll need full training from an elite team of survival experts! For every session you attend, you’ll not only learn important survival skills, but you’ll be one step closer to finding all the map pieces to get home.

Your missions

Take on four 60-minute survival missions, each operated by our team of survival experts. Each mission is completely supervised and aims to teach kids how to think like a true survivor, all while having fun and making new friends. Missions are run over weekends and every day during school holidays, with each mission costing $15 per child.
