Based at an expedition style camp in the heart of the forest, this will be a very 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.
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!
