Bear Grylls Survival Academy

Age requirements

We look to cater for as many ages as possible, however due to the mission content, specific age limits apply. Missions 1-4 require child participants be aged 4-17. Children aged 4-7 must be accompanied by an adult parent/guardian. Accompanying adults can attend free of charge to supervise. If adult/guardian wishes to participate an additional mission fee will apply.
The Family Mission requires all child participants aged 4-17 to be accompanied by a paying adult. A minimum of one parent and one child is required when booking the family mission.

Risk waiver

It is a condition of booking that the “Risk Waiver” form must be completed, signed and returned to us prior to mission commencement by responsible parent/guardian.

Mission pricing

Mission pricing is set at $15 for NRMA members and $20 for non-members, per participating child or adult. We reserve the right to alter any of our advertised mission prices. Current mission pricing will be displayed prior to confirming your booking.

All activities are offered to create positive and safe experiences, focusing on fun and enjoyment. If the behaviour of a child or adult is negatively impacting the operation of the activity, or causing possible safety issues, we reserve the right to terminate the individual’s participation in the activity. In this instance, a refund will not be provided. Furthermore, if the participant causes damage to any property or equipment, reimbursement to replace or repair same will be payable to NRMA Parks & Resorts prior to departure at the conclusion of the accommodation period
