Survive the Night with Survivorman, Les Stroud

June 03, 2021

Saturday June 19th — 7:00PM EST

You may have seen the Great 8 Challenge taking place across Canada over the last few weeks. After a year of on and off lockdowns, Scout Sections and families shared in the fun by eating grubs, putting first aid into play on the trail, building tarp shelters, navigating the woods and so much more!

Join Scouts Canada’s “Survive the Night” to hear from Les LIVE as he speaks about his new book, Wild Outside: Around the World with Survivorman (published by Annick Press © 2021 Stroud Publishing Inc), and answers your questions. We are thrilled not only to team up with Les in hosting the Great 8 Challenge, but to also have Les join us to share his truly unique experiences and expertise, touching on his new book and how it relates to Scouting in helping kids to embrace and respect nature.  

But wait, there’s more…

Les will also reveal the winning Scout Group of the Great 8 Challenge, who will be invited to a virtual meet n’ greet with Surivorman later this summer. Scouts Canada will also announce a big surprise coming your way this October—you don’t want to miss it!

Scouting youth, families and Scouters are invited to “Survive the Night” on June 19 at 7:00pmEST. 

Submit your questions for Survivorman in advance to discover tips, best practices and exhilarating stories from Les’ expeditions around the world.
