General information

Our wild weekends are a great opportunity for newbies to get to grips with a variety of outdoor skills or for the more experienced outdoors person to enjoy doing what they love. They are also an opportunity to become fully immersed in nature and to reap the benefits of time in the wild. This is therapy, but not as most people think of it! Most of all it will be fun!

All weekends are fully insured. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided and dietary requirements will be catered for (please let us know!). There are 10 places available for each weekend based on two adults per pitch.

During the day all activities will be fully instructed and all equipment to carry them out will be provided. You will need to provide your own sleeping equipment, suitable clothing, toiletries, medication, and a torch – a full list is provided in the resources section.

Please remember that due to seasonal availability and the weather if it becomes extreme, activities will be subject to change but will retain the same themes and be fully interactive.

All attendees can get as involved as they wish, simply spectate or take some free time instead. No one will be asked to do anything they are not comfortable with. This includes sleeping arrangements, outdoors, in a tent or vehicle camper, the choice is completely yours.

Absolutely no experience required! Our courses are open to anyone regardless of their skill level or experience.

While we have included timings on the itineraries, these are guidelines. Nature moves slowly and we will complete activities at a pace that everyone is comfortable with, so timings are nothing more than a guide.
