Family Camps

WildWise have been running family camps and holidays for 13 years in the wilds of Devon.  Our events are designed to encourage both adults and children to develop a deeper relationship with the natural world, meet their learning edge and spend quality family time together.

Our annual Family Camp is a solid favourite with new and regular faces alike gathering each summer for a week of bushcraft skills, traditional crafts and fireside fun. With a focus on family fun, relaxed learning and natural creativity the family camp is a wonderful way to enjoy time together in a beautiful natural setting. 

'I would like to say that I had one of the happiest weeks of my life and appreciate all the hard work that went into the event. Wonderful. Please let me know the dates for next years camp as soon as you have them. Very best wishes.' Gina Taylor

'Many thanks to all the people who worked so hard on the Family Camp. We had such a brilliant holiday – the best thing we did all summer. Best wishes.' Susan Webberley

Our Dangerous Weekend for Boys is another hugely popular annual event aimed at fathers & sons (or boys and a male guardian) to spend special time together, learning all sorts of exciting and - slightly! - dangerous skills in bushcraft and survival. Spend a weekend learning how to make fires, find food, build shelters and have a good craic round the campfire.

'Thank you to all the team for this weekend. The boys and I had a fabulous time. I will be recommending it I assure you.' Julian Sheather

'Steve and Thomas had a fabulous time! When I collected them they had so many stories to tell me about - they lasted for days!' Jo Greene

Please note WildWise believes everybody should get outdoors and enjoy the natural world. We strive to make our outdoor experiences and activities accessible and  to provide an inclusive programme. If there is something missing from our public programme that you would like to book on e.g. a family bushcraft weekend or a girl only bushcraft weekend, then please get in touch. If we get enough interest we will do our best to accommodate you.....

We run a full calendar of events each year with lots of family friendly courses and events. Please see our full Events calendar for more information.
