About the experience

The Castaway Challenge is a fun way to test your survival skills. The challenge is split into 3 sections, the first being making it to dry land after being ‘shipwrecked’. To get to safety you will have to wild swim, climb and coasteer along the coast to get to the cove. Once there your instructors will teach you the basics of survival with bushcraft, identifying wildlife and foraging before cooking on the open fire. Your last part of the challenge is escaping the cove. You will have to locate the raft (super SUP) and work as a team to get on board and launch back to shore. The challenge lasts around 2 hours where you will get to grips with your new survival skills. Even when being ‘shipwrecked’ you will have time to soak in the beautiful Cornish coastline surrounding you.
