Are you ready to get back to basics and raise some funds to support the work of Acquired Brain Injury Ireland? We are looking for people who want to support brain injury survivors by doing something a little bit different.
Can you survive a night in the mountains? You will meet on Day One to get briefed on the challenge ahead: survive for the next 24 hours in the wilderness with no tents!
The first part of the challenge is a series of workshops where you will learn essential skills you’ll need to get through the challenge:
- Shelter Building
- Fire Starting
- Wilderness First Aid/Rescue Skills
- Leave No Trace / Environmental Issues
Once all workshops are completed, the group start their trek to reach high camp, a remote and wild site in the mountains. When you reach camp, your first priority will be to build shelters and start a fire. Ration packs are issued to all participants, and you will prep a tasty camp dinner before sitting around the campfire for stories. Participants bed down for the night in their shelters.
Next morning, we break camp after breakfast. We leave nothing behind and return the campsite to the way we found it before descending back down to our start point and our journey home.
