5 out of 5 stars

Such a great party for 8 year old boys, the instructor managed to channel their energy and enthusiasm in archery and they had some great competitions, the highlight for them was the shelter building bushcraft and sitting out toasting marshmallows on the fire. They had such a good time, a great choice for a bits party.
