Our promise to parents is that we will return your troops tired, trained and happy. We cannot guarantee they will be clean or dry but as our expert staff always say;

“A dirty child is a happy child”.

Home Leave is granted daily…

“Stock up on home rations and grab some Z’s, we move again at first light!!”

We are an outdoor adventure company and our ethos is to stay outdoors when at all possible. We expect to get wet and muddy but stay warm and having fun. Mud and rain are not a problem, merely hurdles to be overcome.

Rest assured your kids will be educated, encouraged and guided through our bootcamp. Ultimately though our goal is to develop the leader within and we are sure you will notice change as the days progress.
