"Alfie just had a Nerf tactical challenge party with Craig Reynolds - 16 10 and 11 year olds running around playing last man standing, all out war, medic, capture the flag etc. They ran about like crazy and didn’t stop laughing, it was great! Craig was really calm and kept on top of it all, thank you so much! Karen Marie Mills 

"Our son Max goes to pathfinders and every week comes home buzzing about all the cool things they've done.
Craig also dropped everything last minute to step in on my stag do when we were let down by another activity. He sorted out shooting and survival activities for us which was actually more fun than the original plans.
Their woodland development and activity centre is really exciting and gives a great area for kids and adults to enjoy the outdoors.
We're looking forward to the upcoming zombie apocalypse day!!! Drew Davis

"Max had a fabulous Nerf party for his 7th Birthday. Craig was fantastic with the children, nothing was too much trouble and he really ran the party effortlessly. All the boys had an amazing time...only wish is that it was longer as they didn't want it to end. The battles were so much fun and everyone really enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend a nerf party as it was really unique and totally stress free from start to finish. Thanks so much." Adele Woods

"My son attends Young Pathfinders on a Friday evening and thoroughly enjoys all the activities that Craig and Abigail organise. My son really enjoys the Nerf gun wars Craig holds. As a family we all went to Base camp on their open day and enjoyed activities such as making dream catchers/ tree cookies/ toasting marshmallows/sampling yummy chilly and den building. It's nice to see children be children and play using their imagination and surroundings."   Sarah-Louise Wallis

They have begged me to let them go tomorrow too and luckily Craig has space.

"We did a family survival day and really enjoyed it. Suits all ages, our children are 4/5/11 and they all got involved. We built a shelter, made a fire, roasted marshmallows, purified water and cooked pasta, made a bow and arrow and did a search and rescue! Would do this again anytime, thank you Craig" Kate Wedgbury

"I run Stealth Black Belt Academy in Coalville as part of their Black Belt training I sent 9 young people between the ages of 10 and 15 on a survival overnight expedition wit young path finders. Their feedback reed from "Awesome" to "Sick" which I believe means very good in teenage speak and nothing to do with eating live crickets lol
They all absolutely loved the experience and all gained new skills and grew in confidence.
Craig is an excellent instructor who is able to pass on his years of experience in a fun and informative way."    "Highly recommended"   Craig Bärenjäger Smith

"The boys went last night for the first time and had a blast! They can't wait to go back next week!" Alison Stothard
