Will you take up Bear's challenge?

We have two missions on offer for you to complete, you will learn some fantastic survival skills along the way!

BGSA: Shipwrecked

You have become shipwrecked on a desert island after a terrible storm! In order to succeed you must successfully complete each section of this mission. Your team must collect one of Bear’s unique medals before you can move onto the next section of your mission. Will you be a standout participant and be awarded a medal of your own?!

Family Survival Mission

You and your family are on your summer holiday exploring an exotic island, but the tide has come in and you’ve lost your way back! Have you and your family got what it takes to find your way back to mainland? Work as a family unit to accomplish the tasks! If you make it, you’ll earn a family certificate for your honour!

Well, you aren't the first and you sure won't be the last. Ok, first things first: relax. Take a deep breath, keep a clear head and get your priorities right. Think before you act.

The phrase I use to remind myself is: Please Remember What's First: PROTECTION, RESCUE, WATER and FOOD. These are the absolute basics you need to survive. And survival needs to become your number one goal.
