Following the success of last year’s event, Kids Up Front Calgary is pleased to announce the return of our wilderness challenge event this August.

Update: Stranded: Water Valley 2016 was nominated for a Calgary Event Award in the Best Fundraiser Category!

Tribal council, cameras, immunity and sleeping under the stars are things to expect when competing. With an experienced crew running the event, players would have a hard time noticing they’re not taking part in a reality TV event.
