How about this one, probably a Heinlein juvenile and painfully easy:

Boys are dropped into some sort of survival test/rite of passage, but their pick-up doesn't arrive at the end of the exercise and they must survive as best they can?
That one is indeed Heinlein - it's "Tunnel in the Sky" (beware of stobor!).
