The Bear Grylls Survival Academy comes to Colorado

They say that misery loves company, so if your idea of a refreshing getaway involves foraging for grubs and fighting for your life, we’ve got just the place for you. The Bear Grylls Survival Academy, named after the former British Special Forces’ combat survival instructor and popular star of TV’s “Man vs. Wild,” embraces the motto, “It may hurt a little.” And the pain is coming to the Colorado Rocky Mountains this summer, with both the 24-Hour Adult Survival Course and the 24-Hour Family Course offered at Glacier View Ranch near Ward.

Led by Bear’s “close team of highly trained survival experts,” lucky Academy participants will relish an assortment of “extreme survival techniques” including knife skills, emergency shelter building, fire lighting, remote medical trauma treatments, foraging for grubs and rodents, river crossings, extreme weather survival, rappelling, traversing, scrambling, and everyone’s favorite: Bear’s famous Gross Eat Challenge. It’s all in a day’s desperate survival work, or as Bear jauntily describes these gritty lessons, “what it really means to be able to look after yourself when the chips are down.”

Paul Gardiner, Global Director for Bear Grylls Survival Academy, is braced for the extra-exhilarating challenge: “With its vast wilderness areas, majestic peaks and abundant rivers, lakes and streams, the Colorado Rockies are an ideal location for Bear Grylls Survival Academy. This is an exciting endeavor and we are totally thrilled about providing a fun, adventure-packed experience at our awe-inspiring High Altitude Colorado Rockies location.”
