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!!!!
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!
We had a fantastic day with BGSA, the whole team joined in and we had great fun on the day. The event went smoothly and the BGSA team kept us all laughing with a few surprises along the way! Would recommend BGSA to any sized company big or small. Thanks again!
The Survival Academy is an exciting opportunity to escape the rush of life and learn necessary life skills. Our group bonded instantly and had a memorable 24 hours hiking, tracking, practicing the art of fire starting, building shelters and surviving in the woods. Just the right mix of challenge and comfort, the 24-hour experience is perfect for people looking to dip their toe into outdoor survival. Immediately upon surviving the weekend, I started dreaming of attending one of the longer, more intense programs!
