Wild Ventures Weekend

Need more Wild?

Step out of the manmade environment you control, and into the wild where you can thrive. This is a detox for modern life. No email, no billboards, no parking problems. Take up the challenge of staying warm, making shelter, cooking with fire and finding natural resources – wonder is closer than you think.

Based at an expedition style camp in the heart of the forest, this will be a IMG_8647very practical weekend with a maximum group size of 10. You will be encouraged to have a go at a range of activities aimed to help us enjoy connecting with the wild. Around the campfire there will be time to share stories of the day’s adventures, toast marshmallows and have a laugh!

Accommodation will be under tarp bivouacs which you will set up during the shelter session. All main meals, and tea / coffee will be provided. Hot water for drinks will be supplied via the camp kettle throughout the weekend. Our evening meal on Saturday night will be a hearty game stew which we will prepare and cook over the campfire. On Sunday morning we will make damper bread for breakfast cooked on the embers.IMG_8688IMG_8669

I love seeing the unity and connection which naturally occurs as we work together outdoors. For me, it’s hard to quantify the profound restorative value of time in the woods.

Using a blade, toting logs, or successfully producing a meal without modern conveniences, just feels good!
