Challenge yourself with The Royal British Legion Survival Challenge, where your ultimate mission is to survive 5 days in the wilderness. Learn the skills needed to survive off-grid from our military survival experts and put your new skills to the test.

In a secluded woodland location you’ll learn key survival skills from fire lighting, water purification to foraging. Working as a team you and your fellow survivors will build a camp from scratch and completely get back to nature.

The Royal British Legion Survival Challenge is not for the faint of heart so push your endurance to its limits and join us for an adventure into the wilderness.

This is a completely unique way to raise the funds needed for the Royal British Legion to continue our work supporting serving and ex-serving military personnel. 

Whether you come in a group or on your own this is the perfect adventure for anyone looking to go off-grid and escape the modern world.

Led by a survival expert your group will learn the basics of wild camping and over the course experience: 

  • Expert teaching from military survival specialists 

  • Natural shelter building 

  • Bushcraft and survival skills 

  • Night navigation 

  • Fun challenges, plus lots more 

At the close of the week there will be a medal ceremony with your campmates, and a short service with a moment to reflect on why you took on this incredible challenge for the Royal British Legion.
