SURVIVAL SKILLS FOR CHILDREN – FOR UK & INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS
THE OUTDOOR CLASSROOM
John Sullivan, founder of Elite Survival is a former Royal Marine. You might think his experience of the rigours of military life might make him unsympathetic to the child’s view of the world.
John has an uncanny knack of understanding how children’s minds work. He treats them as grown-ups and is ever conscious of their varying levels of confidence and ability. John appreciates that key to children’s enjoyment of his Survival Courses is that they have fun!
‘WHAT ON EARTH HAS EXTREME SURVIVAL GOT TO DO WITH CHILDREN?’
GOOD QUESTION! HERE ARE JUST A FEW ANSWERS. OUR SURVIVAL SKILLS COURSES WILL:
Help children to learn the virtues of creative thinking & risk taking
Help them to appreciate the importance of preparation
Encourage them to overcoming adversity
Foster leadership & morale
Help them to embrace change
Encourage an appreciation of the environment and natural resources
Give them the courage to be themselves and – just as important – the children will learn how to have a great time!
CHOOSE FROM A NUMBER OF COURSE TYPES –
Up to a full week
In each case the children will learn some or all of the following skills. (The longer the course, the more in-depth will be the degree of learning)
Fire Skills – how to make a fire with only the most basic of materials – whether wet or dry
Survival Psychology – why a positive attitude is crucial. How to find items to help you in your quest for survival
Wilderness Foraging – how to identify which plants are edible and which to avoid. How to find and conserve water
