Stranded on an island with nothing but the wreckage from your crash, learn skills to survive and escape.
We’re stranded! On an island! With nothing except the wreckage from our crash! But panicking won’t get us anywhere, so let’s get to work. First, we’ll have to figure out a way to purify water and cook food. Next, with whatever materials we have handy (rope, tarp, twigs), we’ll need to build a shelter. A fire too — even though we don’t have any matches. With bears stealing our food and torrential rains destroying our tent, there’s no telling what disaster will strike next. We’ll practice emergency rescue procedures, learn how to treat wounds and diseases, and plot our escape. Whatever it takes to get off this island — a giant raft, Morse code — we’ll learn how to do it so we can get back home safely!
