Stranded: Water Valley 2018

Stranded: Water Valley returns Aug. 10-12


Our 16 contestants will be sleeping in the woods, given limited amounts of food and be tested physically, mentally and emotionally. Camera crews will follow their every move. Tribal council will break alliances and expose secrets. Reward challenge wins will bring up their spirits more than ever imagined. A few months after the champion has been crowned and dust has settled, we host a private movie screening of the entire weekend. Contestants have four months to fundraise the minimum $2,500 for what promises to be one of the more memorable weekends of your life.


"By far one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. So grateful to be a part of it." - former Stranded contestant 


"Stranded was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had in my life." - former Stranded contestant

Our small team of four works hard to put on Stranded: Water Valley. We also have a tremendous crew, Blindside Entertainment, who run the challenges and game play throughout the weekend. We aim to make this weekend as authentic as possible, and to raise as much money as possible to go towards sending more kids and families to events in the Calgary and surrounding area.


Want to help or be involved? We're looking for sponsors in a number of capacities. Learn more below.
