Event 1 - Wild Solo Camping
1000hrs Sat 28th - 1100hrs Sun 29th May 2022 £60pp
Do you fancy sleeping out under the stars surrounded by nature and wildlife? Want to gain more confidence about solo camping? Our overnight wild camps are designed to give you the skills and confidence you need to set up your overnight shelter, make a campfire and enjoy outdoor cooking.
After an afternoon’s training with Britain's very first female Army Commando - Pip, you make your way in to the woods to find your own solo wild camping space, safe in the knowledge that the base camp is within earshot.
Enjoy a group evening meal at base camp and then using your new found skills, enjoy a night’s wild camping solo.
Shortly after dawn you take down your camp and leave no trace, before joining the base camp again for a campfire breakfast.
This is an empowering, gentle and supported way to try out wild camping, raising your confidence and taking time to reflect on the experience as a group before you leave.
You can choose to sleep completely wild with a natural shelter, bivvy bag or tarp, or you can bring your own tent with you; it is your decision how ‘back to basics’ you want to be. We wish you to have the experience that feels right for you.
Tickets include all training and food. We have a small number of sleeping bags and bivvy bags available for those who don’t have them.
Event 2 - Womens Wild Wellness
0900hrs - 1600hrs Sat 2nd July £55pp
Think open fires, wild swims, bare feet, fresh air, and total immersion in the elements of our woodland space for a day.
The flow of the day will include being guided to identify seasonal wild food which we will collect for our feast. We will then learn and practice different ways of using natural materials to create fires to cook on. After lunch we will enjoy some breathing techniques before enjoying a wild swim.
Experience the pleasure of spending time in a connected way in wild and natural environment. Come and get away from the stresses and strains of life to be immersed in nature and good company. Bring a friend, bring your mum, or come alone and meet new people in a friendly, relaxed setting.
Created by women for women, this day is about personal growth, transformation, connection and having fun. All resources are provided, you will just need swim wear and towel.
