  1. Sue Foster

    Ray organised a last minute bushcraft party for my son’s 8th birthday. From start to finish the experience has been awesome. Really friendly and professional. The children have had a party to remember and have learnt some great skills. Every child had a smile on their faces. I cannot recommend Ray enough. Despite the rain the children were enthralled the whole way through. Brilliant!

  2. Bryan

    Amazing birthday party for our 10 year old and his 10 friends. Completely tailored to our requests and adapting on the day to what the kids wanted to do. Ray was great with the children and they really looked up to him and his knowledge. We all learned a lot. Would highly recommend

  3. Victoria

    We spent Saturday with Ray in the woods for my birthday celebrations as an alternative to going to the cinema/eating pizza and I don’t regret it for a second! Two weeks later the kids are still talking about it! We built shelters, learned how to make fire (and believe me I’m not sure whether my 8 year old or my husband enjoyed that more!), made bread, learnt foraging skills plus learnt loads of interesting facts about the forests and the various plants that grow there….Ray was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and eager to share his skills with us, I would recommend one of his courses to anyone (indeed I have been!). My daughter said one of the best things about the day was that we all talked to each other more, worked together as a team plus had ‘digital down time’! Thank you so much Ray!

    Ray came to our house to teach my ten year old son and his friends about bushcraft as a birthday party. He did an amazing job sparking and holding their interest (after a busy week at school). They loved making fire for themselves, learning about different ways of doing so, safely of course, making a simple primitive weapon too, and eating what Ray had cooked for them outside. I feel they all look at the world around them slightly differently now and that is what I hoped for, so thank you Ray, it was a brilliant birthday and one to remember.

  5. Angela

    Had the most amazing time celebrating our daughter’s 8th Birthday with Back to Wilderness. Ray, you were amazing. The children from age 5 to 10 responded so well to your leadership. And your patience to enable everyone to take an active part was really appreciated. A party to remember! Some great memories built on time shared together with Back to Wilderness. I can and definitely will recommend this to all. A very big thank you x

  6. Kassandra

    Had my son’s 10th birthday party with Ray at Thetford Forest. From the very start the communication was excellent. Ray was in constant contact and answered all of my questions promptly. The 10 boys and girls really enjoyed making fire using numerous methods and learning about primitive weapons (even the adults got a turn in throwing!). He is very knowledgable and held their attention throughout. I would thoroughly recommend this party to anyone, it was really good value for money. Thanks again Ray.

  7. Henny

    It was my son’s 8th birthday party and we had 15 of his friends to come and celebrate – Ray manged to keep them enthralled pretty much throughout the 3 hours! The Siberian weather could have been a deal breaker but the children loved learning so much about making fire, ancient weapon throwing and much more. It finished with sausages and marshmallows cooked on the fire, a superb birthday all round. Thank you Ray!

  8. Gavin

    We attended for a friend’s daughter’s 11th birthday, and we had an absolute blast. Ray was thorough, friendly and authoritative. He was endlessly patient with this group of girls across ages, and in return, they thought he was ace. The adults joined in with the fire making, and his demo of building a den and then getting the girls to do so was fantastic fun, I absolutely recommend this to anyone.

  9. Alyson

    My daughter had a great time. Ray was informative fun and friendly

  10. John Haigh

    What an amazing day. It was a birthday surprise so had no idea what to expect but Ray was brilliant. Ray clearly knows his stuff but takes care to explain processes & skills. I looked after our dog whilst Tracy & Tommy made their own mallets to prepare their own bow drill kits. After a morning of learning about the principles of fire starting & water sourcing the afternoon was spent preparing to make the holy grail. A bow drill fire! It was thrilling to see Tracy & Tommy ma…
