Founded deep in the woods of Muskoka in 1931, by expert Canadian camper, Tommy How, the Grizzly Cup is a competition like no other.  From the 50-foot rope course to the aquatics race, from the fire challenge to the grueling Mud Run – the Grizzly Cup tests competitors’ bravery, teamwork, athleticism and problem solving skills.This year, contestants will face more intense challenges and be pushed to their limits, while building an unbreakable bond with their teammate.Principal photography for the Grizzly Cup special (4 x 30 minutes) will begin later this summer, followed by the season’s debut on Disney XD in November.
