Confidence. You can read about survival skills in a book and you can watch countless videos online. But it wasn't until I saw the lifesaving skills preformed successfully at Willow Haven outdoor that the things I've seen on my computer monitor and in all those books that I felt knowing them would make a difference.
The SurviVaction was one of the best weekends of my life. Creek is a very patient and passionate instructor who makes sure you understand the concepts behind each skill, successfully demonstrates each technique and spends time with you so that you too will make it work. Creek showed us so many lifesaving things, it was like the entire Boy Scouts journey in one weekend. His outlook on short-term survival really hits home and the stories shared with other vacationers showed how important that WHEN something happens you have the knowledge and confidence to survive.
You don't need to be an expert woodsman for Willow Haven Outdoor, but you'll feel like you're on your way by the time you arrive at the gate. Creek and Clint showed us the basics needed so we could take home and practice the skills learned that one day could save a life. The confidence from one weekend has made a big impact on my life and I am very grateful to Creek and everyone that made our time at Willow Haven Outdoor one of the best and most insightful weekends ever.
