Here's what units have to say about FMR!

What do you think of our staff?

"I loved them. I met several voyagers and VITs, including those not belonging to my trek. Every single one was incredibly friendly and helpful. Staff is brilliant."

How can we improve to make next year even better?

"We enjoyed our time here and were happy with how the trek went. We can not think of anything that could make the trip better than it already was."

Did the Trek meet your expectations? Why or why not?

"Yes! This was my first trek as an adult. I did it as a Scout 10 years ago and I had the time of my life. This trek blew my expectations away."

How was the food? What changes, if any would you make?

"The food was all great!! Much better than we have on expeditions in the UK." 

Describe the strengths and weaknesses of your Voyager.

"Led from behind, encouraged, supported when needed, enabled the young people to grow at their rate. Was kind of in the background but also very much a part of the group."

Did the Trek meet your expectations? Why or why not?

"Yes! Over our expectations- a perfect balance of challenge + fun while learning."

What do you think of our in-camp program?

"It was quite good. I loved the tubing and found it so fun and exhilarating. I haven't done something like that before. The program building with the pool table, etc. is really relaxing and a very nice place to hang out, especially after a long trek."

Describe the strengths and weaknesses of your Voyager.

"He is a very wise man and taught us about how to canoe, how to use a stove and water filter, efficiently make a fire, set up camp, and sort out priorities. He is an excellent guide: giving us space to navigate. No weaknesses, to be honest. Probably the nicest leader I have ever met." 

Comments you would like to share with the Camp Director: 

"This is my 4th Trek, and it was as great as the 1st. This is a great adventure, and I'm glad Floodwood is here.
