“Life is a rollercoaster, and I attended this course to allow myself the time to escape the rollercoaster.  The weekend away from the world and technology allowed me to re-center myself, and to think critically about what I spend my time on, which empowered me to immediately make some adjustments to my daily activities.”

“I really enjoyed the basic survival course. Being out in the bush and learning basic rules of survival, some of which include starting fires, doing wood crafts, and making shelter. This course gave me a basic outline of what is required to sustain oneself in the bush. It was a fun and informative course. Looking forward to more of these.”

“We were on the basic survival as a family of 5 (2 adults; 3 children) It was great and we really learned a lot. As a family it helped us to work together, help each other and emotionally supporting one another. We believe it is important to do this course  with your children, for they are our future generation and our children really need to be ready now more than ever to survive in all circumstances. This course will open your eyes in many ways and will really help you to appreciate more in many areas of your life. We want to give all thanks and glory to God Almighty (Jesus Christ) who helped and guided us through this life changing experience. Nothing is possible without God!”

“I booked for the basic survival course with my son and wanted to spend some time with him in the outdoors doing something fun. This course opened my eyes to survival and I never though there was so many skills that can be learned in a single weekend. I spend quality time with my son and the teaching of our instructor was highly professional.”
