Bear Grylls Survival Academy

Kids Vs. Wild

The ultimate outdoor group experience is here

At NRMA Parks and Resorts, we believe that outdoor experiences are paramount to building a positive relationship with the environment and our natural habitat, helping shape physical and mental wellbeing.

That’s why we’ve have exclusively partnered with the Bear Grylls Survival Academy, to bring your group Kids Vs. Wild, an outdoor survival and adventure program!

 Kids Vs. Wild offers both a fun and educational experience through challenging and interactive activities set in nature. Led by a team of highly trained survival experts, participants will learn teamwork and self-discipline, as well as build on confidence and self-esteem. Not only will they have fun with their peers, but they will also gain the skills to survive in the wild – Bear Grylls style!

Book your adventure

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 with their peers.
