read some of our feedback from previous parties...
Black Wolf Survival were booked for my daughter's 7th Birthday. It was such a wonderful event. Very professional, great value, amazing activities, brilliant facts and humour... I could go on! Wonderful, lovely guys. Poppy and her friends loved it. Thank you so much!
Black Wolf hosted my son's 7th birthday party with a difference! The kids were kept enthralled and loved all the different activities. The adults who chose to remain also learnt lots of stuff as well! feedback from the kids was exceptional. Would definitely recommend! Thank you.
Watched Craig do a bushcraft lesson with kids at a local Woods. Was amazed at finally being able to see what a 9v battery and wire wool does. Since being told by a teacher years ago. Brilliant lesson, Brilliant Bloke.
