The BGSA are an exceptional team of people and we cannot recommend them highly enough. They created an exceptional day which allowed everyone to challenge and push themselves whilst recognizing limits and abilities - the result was a day that developed teamwork, bonding, fun, laughter, competition and increased knowledge. The instructors were open and approachable and went out of their way to guide and assist without encroaching. I would encourage any company to book BGSA at various levels of the organisation - I know we will be doing so again soon.
The Survival Academy is an exciting opportunity to escape the rush of life and learn necessary life skills. Our group bonded instantly and had a memorable 24 hours hiking, tracking, practicing the art of fire starting, building shelters and surviving in the woods. Just the right mix of challenge and comfort, the 24-hour experience is perfect for people looking to dip their toe into outdoor survival. Immediately upon surviving the weekend, I started dreaming of attending one of the longer, more intense programs!
Just wow! I wanted to take part in a survival weekend for my daughters 8th birthday and this 24hr course massively exceeded my expectations! The instructors (Martin, Nicholas & Lee) were clearly enthusiastic in there chosen careers and dragged everyone on that course in to the world of survival! My daughter stated on the way home that it was the best weekend she?d ever had and I have to say I agree! Within 24hrs we've both learned extraordinary skills I?d never dreamed you could learn in that space of time! I could have done a week of it to be honest. I?d highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure and an open mind to the reality of what?s involved when it comes to surviving in unknown territory!! An experience to remember and to definitely take part in again! My eyes have been opened! Thank you!!!!
From the initial meeting at the lodge, to the final goodbyes in the parking lot, Jake and Dan were exceptional leaders and instructors. My 9 year old daughter and I did the 24 hour Family course in The Catskills, NY. We learned so many new skills that we cannot wait to practice on our own. My daughter has been raving about it since we got home, and immediately asked when the next adventure was. I highly recommend this for anyone who's has a child that enjoys the outdoors and camping. What an amazing experience for both myself and my daughter. Thank you again Jake, Dan, and the rest of the Bear Grylls team for such a wonderful experience!
