The rucksacks are packed. The clothes we’ll be in for 3 days are donned. The sneaky chocolate bars are stuffed in pockets.
Off we go to Jungle Camp. Three days of intense practical training on survival in the jungle, risk assessment, constructing basha hammocks and sleeping in very close proximity to 3 people who haven’t washed for a couple of days.
For the reasons stated above, and more besides, it’s gonna be tough. The 5 groups - Whisky 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 - are all nervously but excitedly anticipating all the challenges that face us, and looking forward to some team bonding around the campfire (or at least the trangia), and learning some hard(core) skills to pay the bills, like Bear Grylls.
Trangias, tents, treks and teambuilding...bring it on!
