WildWise courses and camps are based on our specialist skills and knowledge of bushcraft, survival skills, fieldcraft, wildlife, nature awareness, woodcraft, personal development, and storytelling. We work with our own experienced and professional team together with a national network of specialists to provide courses and events of the highest quality - from kids camps and family holidays to bushcraft and environmental education training. Key features of WildWise events include direct, hands-on experiences, skills development, recreational learning and environmental appreciation. The challenging and creative opportunities we offer can expand individual and corporate understanding of the value and meaning of our relationship to the natural world. Events in our brochure are held in inspiring and beautiful Devon locations that are teeming with wildlife. We also travel nationwide, by arrangement.


'To hear my children talk about all that they discovered, to see the life in their eyes as they relive their experience and to notice the depth of feeling is to know that I have given them something as a parent to treasure forever,'
Paul Hornsey-Pennell
