Corporate Bushcraft Courses

Teambuilding with a difference

With the ever increasing popularity of television survival shows from Ray Mears, Bear Grylls etc., more and more people are looking to learn the basics of survival and bushcraft. When a group is stranded in the wild the key to survival is teamwork and leadership. Survival and bushcraft courses from Arena will provide your business with the ideal team building event to enable your staff and executives to learn to pull together and work better and more efficiently as a team. The valuable lessons learned can be taken back and used in the workplace.

Objective:
To allow small Corporate Groups (up to 20 at a time) to experience a genuinely different type of challenge away from the workplace. To establish, enrich and develop relationships, learn new skills with the emphasis on teamwork.
