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!
“From the start of our dealings with Rachel and the Bear Grylls Team I knew we were in good hands. On the day, they took charge of our large group and immediately made everyone feel like they wanted to get involved – which is not an easy job! Thanks again guys, lots of laughs and great memories made”
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!!!!
I came to BGSA Instructors Course with no expectations, mainly because of curiosity, as one day I'd like to take my children for 24hr Family Course. I must admit that the reality exceeded whatever I had imagined, considering I'm not that easy to impress with this kind of things after 2.5 years spent in Russian Special Forces. After having completed this course I'm not just going to take my children for the Family Course, I'll also bring my wife along! Just kidding! I'll try to become an instructor at BGSA.
