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 wild game 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!
