On Imagine’s unique survival camp we share our environmental knowledge and bushcraft skills in an exciting and safe setting. The first 3 days are spent in a stunning forest surrounding on Yangmingshan where we will cover a range of fascinating survival skills with a ‘civilisation game’ theme. The last two days of the camp are spent on the sandy Fulong beach where we will build rafts, play beach games and complete some stand-up paddleboard (SUP) challenges.
