“I am so lucky to have experienced training with the Survival Wisdom Team. Not only did I learn useful skills and resilience techniques but it gave me a deeper sense of self confidence and a trust that I am capable of handling situations outside my comfort zone. I loved this adventure and enjoyed pushing the envelope both physically and mentally. I recommend this experience to anyone interested in building self reliance or teams wanting a bit of adventure”
