Activity Theme

Survivor 2019 has been designed around a theme of ‘’The Aftermath’’. Following years of extreme weather conditions, civilisation has been reduced to the population living in Factions. These factions obtain food and equipment through a series of challenges that are decided by the Directorate. If your Team excel at their challenges they may be moved to the next higher faction, BUT if they don’t they may be moved to the next lower faction. Upon arrival at the Wastelands, the Directorate will check all Faction team members and their equipment.

Border Security

All Gear will be checked at the entrance to the ‘Wastelands’ to ensure that prohibited items do not enter the Wastelands. These items will be confiscated, particularly electronic items (excluding torches) such as phones, etc. Any food or equipment outside of the provided team equipment list will also be confiscated.
