Green Man Survival

My family and I had so much fun! James is so knowledgeable and kept us all entertained the whole morning. My children always talk about making fires with James and I especially enjoyed the hot chocolate and s’mores! We can’t wait to try another experience!!

What a great course! I wanted to try something new to do in the Lake District and have learnt so much from James, I cannot wait to come back again.

Maggie, Northumberland

My family and I had a wonderful afternoon with Green Man Survival this winter. I was constantly impressed by James’s depth of knowledge and friendly manner, as well as his patience! There’s no better way to learn bush craft and survival skills than with real, hands on experience and I can thoroughly recommend Green Man survival for the job.
