A truly magnificent weekend of “WOWS!” for the whole family

These are just some of the array of activities which will give you a “WOW!” weekend, so don’t miss out.

FamilyCrseThanks Dave and Alex for such a fantastic experience at your lovely camp. My son faced his fears of sleeping outside and learnt that nature and insects are sharing our Planet and not just here to bite and scare us!! The dusk walk was very informative and highly enjoyable, seeing bats flying in the sunset was an awesome sight, and learning about the woodlands natural resources for survival was very valuable to my sons development in his life skills. The added entertaining of Dave’s singing by the campfire was a delight, what more can a group of people ask for? We will be back to learn new skills for sure. Kerry & Antony, Leicestershire

I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for an excellent weekend on your Woodland Survival that we attended through the Ark in Oundle group.

Charlotte and myself had a great time !

Thank you for teaching us so many very interesting and useful skills – and for all the fun that you provided too. It was an experience that we’ll never forget and Charlotte has not stopped smiling since!

Please extend our thanks to Mike and Ewan as well – their input and kindness was most appreciated.

I have another daughter who is desperate to come along in the years ahead ! – and Charlotte is already counting the days down till next year. Thanks and best regards
Tony and Charlotte

I wanted to write and say how much my daughter and I enjoyed the Family Bushcraft weekend. Dave the tutor was excellent. He kept things moving without pressure. None of the adults felt patronised – we all learnt a lot. None of the children felt out of their depth – they all had a great time. I will recommend the course to my friends. Jerry Dicker, Thornbury

Dave, Ian and Richard,
