Survival skillsOn a cold November morning nine  GATE young people and three even more excited staff set off to Herd Farm. John, our guide took us to a thick forest to see if we would survive the day on our wits alone!

We learnt how to light a fire using only flint and things we could find around us. We designed traps and built dens and we cooked our dinner on an open fire. A really great day everyone enjoyed it. Thanks to the Youth Service for supporting us.
