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 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.
This course allowed me to really challenge myself both Physically and Mentally. I will never forget the strength of feelings that this course brought out in me. I saw only the best in people around me, well beyond my expectations. The course did far more than it could ever 'put on the tin'. The Bear Grylls team were role models of what can be achieved in life irrespective of age. The BG certificate will find Pride of Place amongst my many others for many, many reasons. Thank you all for the memories
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 recognising 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.
