Our Safe Place Challenge is a great event for young people and youth groups, particularly if you are working towards an award or certificate.
 
Join us at the UK’s largest onshore windfarm for an outdoor adventure challenge for youth groups to learn basic survival skills like those used by millions of people fleeing war, conflict and disaster worldwide.

Depending on numbers there will be six different challenges including:
  • Map symbols challenge – Match up the map symbol cards with their descriptions
  • First Aid challenge – Build a stretcher then carry a team member over a set distance
  • Fire challenge – Start a small fire using basic fire-lighting skills
  • Navigation challenge – Using the map provided, produce a route plan or similar
  • Shelter Build challenge – Build a shelter within a set timeframe or to a certain standard
  • Water purification challenge – Create a water purification filter to provide clean drinking water

This is suitable for young people aged 8-15 years old. Both groups and individuals can register to take part. 

There will be two sessions 11:00-14:00 or 14:00-17:00. Each session will have a maximum of 5 groups with 4 or 5 young people in each group.
