"We have all felt the lasting benefits of being out in the woods together and the relaxed pace of our time there. The children have made it very clear that they'd like to do it again as would we! I thought that the way you'd set up the facilities there was great; it hit just the right note between home comforts and survival training! We all learnt a lot over the course of the day; from instruction, observation and from being given space and time to try things for ourselves. Thank you." (Course participant)
"Over-all, my experience was entirely positive. Food was great. Plenty of tea/ coffee/biscuits. Wonderful setting. Just need to do more of it really!" (Course participant)
The courses are held in the woods at the beautiful Footprint nr Windermere, in the Lake District.
