Headed by top survival expert and adventurer Bear Grylls, the Academy programme involves a series of tough survival courses, each carefully designed to test the fitness, agility and determination of all ages and abilities.
The Bear Grylls Survival Academy at Afan Valley Adventure Resort will offer courses including three-hour and 24-hour family challenges plus a series of gruelling corporate teambuilding activities, all of which will be run by a talented team of highly trained instructors.
Afan Valley Adventure Resort will also become the official home and European Head Quarters of the Bear Grylls’ Instructors Academy, where aspiring instructors will be put through their paces on their journey to becoming outdoor leaders.
The primary aim of this course is to recruit and train people in the world of adventure to find potential instructors for the Academy worldwide, but it also serves as an effective training programme for existing outdoor instructors.
The Academy is also in discussions about offering scholarships to locals, as part of a regeneration and jobs creation programme, creating an exciting opportunity for budding adventurers.
