â€¢ Abseiling and Climbing. Purpose built abseil towers (where practical) and a rotating climbing wall will allow you to abseil and climb under the supervision of a Royal Marines Mountain Leader.
â€¢ Paintballing. After a short briefing on some of the Royal Marinesâ€™ tactics, have a go yourself using paintball equipment.
â€¢ Weapons Handling. The Royal Marines Commandos use a wide variety of weapons and equipment, and are world renowned marksmen.
â€¢ Self Defence. A Royal Marines Physical Training Instructor will lead you through a practical introduction into aspects of Unarmed Combat.
â€¢ All Terrain Vehicle Rides. You may have the chance of a ride in the Royal Marines new all-terrain armoured Vehicle called the VIKING.
â€¢ Talk to Royal Marines Commandos. Thereâ€™ll be lots of time to ask the Royal Marines about what life as a Commando is really like, and about their experiences of recent operations.
You may get dirty and wet. Perhaps the odd bruise. Perhaps scared.
