Woodland survival day

We brought our Beaver pack to spend the day. They had a fantastic time making shelters. Learning how to safely start fires and set up there camp fire in order to cook there own bread. The weather certainly pushed them to their limits but they had a fantastic time. Gary is very knowledgable and patient with the children. We would definatly recommend Jack Raven and would definitely visit again.

by Vicky Young, 1st Leybourne Scouts on Jack Raven Bushcraft

Our Scouts really enjoyed learning all the different ways to light a fire, they were the quietest I have ever seen them! Gary’s calm manner meant they had to listen carefully and learnt a lot. They were especially keen to learn how to make a potholder for their fires and were impressed by Gary’s skill as they realised it was harder than it looks. Overall I would happily recommend anyone to book a session and learn some valuable skills, we all enjoyed ourselves, leaders included and would definitely use Jack Raven again.
