Thank you very much for the weekend we spent with you. Both my dad and I really enjoyed it, and I think we both gained a lot from it. I will certainly never look at woodlands in the same way; I appreciate much more now the huge diversity of nature, and all the the ways you can work with it. I was amazed at how much your perception widens, even in just a few days, when living in the woods. At the end of the weekend when I looked around me I noticed new things and wondered what they could be used for or what they might mean. I also learnt lots of new skills which I will remember for life. The teaching team were excellent.

You and the team have inspired me to spend more time outdoors. I have subscribed to the Bushcraft Magazine, and I hope to be practising bushcraft on my own and with my dad over the summer. Jamie Osborn
