    Myself and my son have been visiting Ray at back to wilderness for two years now. Its genuinely the highlight of our month and have learnt an incredible amount. Ray is a brilliant instructor and I cannot think of anyone better to run these courses.

    Another brilliant session with Ray. My son and I have spent two years with Ray from Back To Wilderness on The Junior Explorers Club and have thoroughly enjoyed every session, we had missed the spoon carving session of the explorers club so it was great to catch up with Ray and some of the others who had been on the same course and meet new people. With a teacher like Ray, with his in depth knowledge, the way he teaches you to do it well and safely, in such a friendly atmosphere you can’t help but enjoy yourself, and you end up completely absorbed in the carving of your spoon.

    My husband and I attended a wood carving course with Back to Wilderness in High Lodge Thetford Forest yesterday. We absolutely loved our day in the forest. The course itself was relaxed and very informative, also a huge amount of fun. Our instructor Ray was fantastic! He made our day really great and we learned a lot from it. We recommend the course to everyone who has an interest in Bushcraft and we look forward coming back soon! Thank you Ray!
