  1. Vickie Grenville

    my nephew and his friends attended this session yesterday. They really enjoyed themselves, learnt a lot and had a fantastic experience. They talked about nothing else on the journey home and it was great that they had something else to think about, and they could learn new skills. Much better than simply discussing the blowing up of things from various x-box games! Thanks Ray, your flexibility, knowledge and enthusiasm was much appreciated.

    Awesome session with an excellent teacher and patient man. Covered a huge amount, and importantly including legality/humanity/morality.

    A fantastic day! Loads of tuition, high level of knowledge, high standards of health and safety, very welcoming and a very pleasant manner of calm teaching. Most importantly, it was fun and very rewarding with the skills and knowledge given. Well worth the money and thank you again.

    My daughter & I had a fantastic day on the survival traps & snares course. The day was very well organised & involved many different areas including making our own examples of a trap and the legal & moral issues around them. It was also fun! We have been on many of Rays courses and always find him extremely welcoming, patient, professional, calm and encouraging. We would highly recommend back to the Wilderness.
