" I just wanted to thank you again for our Backwoods Camp this week. It was just brilliant- it was so wonderful to see the children enjoying every single part of the camp and taking risks that they'd never otherwise have taken at this age. The new location is great- they loved being able to explore the area. "
- Melissa, Teacher at Selside Primary School
