Testimonials

“I just wanted to thank you, again. My biggest apprehension going into this weekend was being the only woman. While I had anticipated it, I am genuinely grateful that you both made it a non-issue. Your professionalism, and courtesy made for an awesome experience. I wish more ladies would take it upon themselves to get out there and learn these skills. I believe fear is their biggest hurdle. Your no nonsense, no excuses, approach to these basic skills is completely in point. I’ll be highly recommending you to my friends…”

“Thank you so much for hosting us this weekend! We had a really great time and I think the students learned a lot. Personally I got a lot out of the course and found it very engaging. Can’t thank you enough – it was a pleasure working with you.”

“Just wanted to thank you again! It was a great weekend. Ashley was a little apprehensive about going to a survival course and absolutely loved it. That says a lot about the course and the two of you as well. The location was great and the camaraderie and guidance made for a very memorable experience.”

“I just got home from the Fall Basic Survival course with New England Woods… I learned several useful skills and had a great time doing it. There’s another one in June that I am probably going to sign up for – if anyone is even a little curious, I can’t recommend it highly enough.”

“I had the pleasure of having Jeff deliver a basic survival course tailored to my specific needs. I’ve known Jeff for over 15 years and have known him to have absolute passion for the outdoors. Jeff’s teaching methodology is fantastic, his patience and calm manner allows you the time to build the skills he has taught. I had a great time and learned a lot in a short time. I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking to pickup any level of outdoor skills.”

“Take a minute if you would and check out a new business just starting up by a couple of Woodsman School Alumni. They have been to quite a few courses with us, and will most likely see them again…..so we are happy to spread the word and give them a boost! Couple of great knowledgeable guys right here, and its always a pleasure spending time with them! Best my friends…”

“I was fortunate enough to learn from Jeff at the advanced survival class as well as the recent land navigation course we attended. He helped me grasp whenever I was lacking and thrived at every obstacle presented. He has a knack for teaching, patience, humility and good humor. I look forward to learning more from him, he has a passion for the woods and for seeing others succeed in learning.”
