Run by Chris & Nicki Smart, 112 Survival is based in five acres of woodland close to the Wrekin hill in East Shropshire, and offers a range of survival courses and woodland rental opportunities.
At 112 Survival we specialise in training courses that focus on surviving an outdoor emergency until rescue. We are dedicated to giving you the best possible experience in real life survival skills. We do not conduct bushcraft training.
You will learn how to plan your outdoor adventure and adapt your plan during an emergency situation and alert the Search And Rescue emergency services.
We draw from the knowledge gained during real life survival events to teach and practice procedures that you can apply while surviving your emergency in the outdoors.
We teach these skills in a friendly and open way. We'll help you cultivate a positive attitude, a confidence in yourself, and your equipment, and help you develop your ability to adapt to adversity and survive until rescue.
Our woodland site is available to rent on a full or part day basis allowing people the freedom to conduct their own activities.
We will meet with you on site to show you around and discuss your requirements prior to accepting any bookings.
