Testimonials

"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 have never attended a fun team-building event. The standard trust collapses and workshops never provide the desired reaction from our management. CIV GRP with our senior leadership team energised us and provided us with some helpful advice for the workplace. Will return with all of my sales teams"
Leonel | Los Angeles
I chose a different path than the military. I always wanted to get a taste of what that was like and also learn some things from real deal American Hero's. CIV_GRP was perfect for that and I love that they give back to the people who did serve.
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."
