My name is… Adam

Job Title… Survival Instructor

Original Country… I am a Yorkshireman born and bred in the United Kingdom and living/travelling and having a good time in Kiwiland

Specialising in… I am the Bear Grylls of this outfit and Survival Skills is my game

Previous Experience… I worked for the United Kingdom’s largest outdoor camp provider PGL as an Activity Instructor and then Team Leader delivering and training teams to do everything from zip lining to kayaking, climbing, bushcraft and pretty much EVERYTHING we do at Lakewood Lodge. I have a wide array of experience teaching activities and helping visitors and campers have extraordinary breakthroughs in their lives. My mission is to take Lakewood Survival activity to the next level where campers boldly go where no campers have been before…

BUT Don’t panic – I am a highly trained first-aider so whilst I will push the envelope in helping campers develop courage and self confidence, everything will adhere to our safety policies and procedures too 😊

Why I love Lakewood… I love working with people to help them stretch their limits and love the opportunity to be creative and bring some new skills to the lodge. I love being in the outdoors and getting muddy – which is pretty much what Survival is all about!

Favourite Lakewood Lodge Animal… Kevin the Chicken

Favourite Activity to Instruct… SURVIVAL!!! (and kayaking and flying fox and archery and pretty much all of it haha)
