Special forces survival

At Geology Rocks Adventure, we absolutely love bushcraft! So much so that we've designed two full activities based all around surviving in the woods!

The scenario involves a Special Forces unit (your young party goers) who's plane has crashed behind enemy lines. They have to survive the session time evading the enemy soldiers (our instructors) until their back up comes to rescue them - thats the parents at the end of the session!

We start the activity by teaching your little special forces cadets all the essential survival techniques needed to survive in the great outdoors, with only the items that happen to be lying around to support them. After a spending time showing them how to survive, we get stuck into our Special Forces Survival Scenario!

CHECK OUT THE TWO DIFFERENT OPTIONS BELOW FOR SURVIVAL PARTIES

1.5 hour Special Forces Survival Party

This is great cost effective choice for a kids survival party! It's pretty much the same as our 2.5 hour survival party outlined below. The only thing missing is the food preparation, which involves gutting, cutting, cooking and preparing fresh fish on the campfire, as well as mixing fresh ingredients in the forest to make tasty home cooked soda bread! If you prefer the sound of this party scroll on down to the 2.5 hour party. 

The 1.5 hour session involves:

  • Building a shelter to protect you against the elements

  • Finding ways to create some heat (supervised of course)

  • Toasted marshmallows on the fire

  • Evading the enemy soldier who will issue punishments if caught (10 star jumps or press ups every time we catch them standing up while we patrol!)

2.5 hour Special Forces Survival Party

 

Although we definitely feel our 1.5 hour survival party is awesome, on this longer session your young ones will get to do all of the same cool things from the 1.5 hour session but with the added extra of learning how to gut and prepare fresh fish for cooking on the fire, as well as how to prepare fresh Irish soda bread in nature - and then of course they get to eat everything they cook!

 

AN AMAZING PARTY!

 

The session involves:

  • Building a shelter to protect you against the elements

  • Sourcing food that may be scattered around the area

  • Finding ways to create some heat (supervised of course)

  • Cooking their food on the campfire!

  • Evading the enemy soldier who will issue punishments if caught (10 star jumps or press ups every time we catch them standing up while we patrol!)

This session is absolutely great craic, and although it's usually for kids aged 8 and upwards, we regularly run this activity for adults too - with some additional challenges added for the big kids!
