"As someone who works with sensitive information and travels for work a lot CIV_GRP was not only the greatest weekend of my life but I learned skills that I will take with me forever."
Blake | New York City
"I've never been to a fun team bonding event in my life. The typical trust falls and workshops never elicit the response our managers want. CIV_GRP with our senior leadership team energized us showed us some tips to help back in the office. Will be back as long as I can."
Leonel | Los Angeles
"As an avid airsofter and general military buff I wanted to get as close as I could to training with real professionals. I had the best time with some great people and will be back again and again."
Brett | Boston
"I wanted to be more aware especially as a female. I was a little weary with all the macho-ness that comes with this type of training with ex-military types. Jack and the team made me feel super comfortable and showed me so many ways to keep safe and had a blast doing it."
