Charlie and his gang think they're heading for a week of football training but end up at a Survival Camp instead! Their leader Survival Clive, (once so dehydrated he sucked the sweat from his socks) dumps them in the middle of the forest. They've got just three days to get to base camp, and Charlie must use all his skill to make it back alive!
