"Brilliant fun"

The whole day was brilliant. Well organised, great fun, caring instructors and support staff, and a real blast.
Well done!
Only watch out is the horrible chalky mud. Wear proper walking boots and if you're going anywhere else aftwards, take a change of clothing.

"Just a great day out"

Not sure what I was expecting, but really well organised and the tank driving was brilliant. And much harder physically than I thought! Highly recommended - I will definitely take my boys next year.
