What People Say

“I did a 3 hour course with my girlfriend last week and we were a bit unsure of what to expect at first, but it was awesome! The whole morning was very hands on which was great and we learned a range of very useful skills! Jonny is a really chill guy and very knowledgeable which is perfect for this kind of course!  I would highly recommend and can’t wait to get my overnight course booked”

“My 9 year old daughter and 7 year old twin boys went to camp today. They had a great day, fire making, cooking, den building and playing outdoor games. They loved it. The boys are having their birthday party with Yorkshiredales bushcraft too in a few weeks, they are very much looking forward to it. Thankyou Jonny “
