Based at an expedition style camp in the heart of the forest, this will be a very practical day 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!
We will set up tarp bivouacs, learn to carve and saw wood safely, prepare wild food and find natural resources. Lunch, and tea / coffee will be provided. Hot water for drinks will be supplied via the camp kettle throughout the weekend. Our meal will be wild fish which we will prepare and cook over the campfire.
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!
