“Survival day in outback MelbourneWhat an awesome day! My son and I had a seriously good time. We would never have had such an opportunity otherwise. Paul & Kate are gifted leaders with both Grown-ups and younger folk. And, as a parent among a generation of kids that spend WAY too much time indoors and live in semi cabin-fever mode, I have never seen our son so free and happy – really Thank you so much. We feel much more apt to go out camping now too.”

Survival fundamentals reviews
“Survival Course (in a remote place called Melbourne, Australia)Paul & Kate were just awesome. Humble, helpful, motivating, inspiring. We had a great time for this one day survival course and we thought we should bring our kids next (minimum 8 years old I reckon). We learned a great deal and I feel like I can get lost now… almost safely… :-“
