General Camp Information


Unless specified events and courses are held in Devon. The exact location for your course/event will be confirmed on booking.

Food and water

Water will be supplied at all camps.

Evening meals and simple breakfasts are provided on weekend camps, but you would need to bring enough food for your lunches and to supplement your own breakfasts and . All food is provided on the children’s/teenage camps and the Family Camp. On day events you will need to bring a packed lunch.

We do our best to cater for special diets, but cannot guarantee to provide everything you might want!
Cooking is usually a community event, although individuals can do their own thing.


For the kids and teenage camps, WildWise can supply some communal tents, 3-man ridge tents and camping mats, but for all other events, please bring your own tent if you have one. We do however have 2-4 person tents available to hire at a cost of £5 per night.
