We faced the challenge of the Survival Extreme weekend

Members of The Senior Section Lola, Hannah, Nicola and Emily faced the ultimate test of their survival skills at the Survival Extreme weekend

For Survival Extreme, girls worked in teams to tackle challenges like abseiling and tree-climbing

It was up to them to make sure they had something for dinner, a fire to cook it on and a roof over their head.

Survival Extreme was part of The Senior Section Spectacular and took place at Waddow Hall Activity Centre in Lancashire.
