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!!!!
The 18 hour survival course is an absolute must for anyone starting out 'wild camping', or like most of us that attended, love the outdoors and want to try something new and challenge yourself. It's run by great instructors who have a big background in survival situations. After completing the course i now feel a lot more confident in myself in different situations from lighting a fire to building my shelter for the night or understanding the water purification processes. With the Astro navigation information and demonstration I feel pretty confident in using the techniques myself. We were a small group of 5 and had the bonus of a second instructor joining us for a short time. All 5 of us came away and straight away book a lads trip away to put some of our newly taught skills to the test! Massive thank you to Richard and John
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!
I didn't really know what to expect from the course but even what I got was a shock to the system. This course is full on, with the most professional instructing team I have ever come across. Get your boots on tight because it's an absolute whirlwind!
