"The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us" Eugene Ionesco
A special invitation to bring both the wild child (or wild children) that you parent/care for, and the wild child that lives inside you. Both need a quality of attention and this weekend, boy, are they are going to get it!
The natural world issues endless invitations to jump into wild experiences, and under the skilled and experienced guidance of our team we’ll be offering a menu of immersive activity that will bring your connection to the natural world to a whole new level.
Think naughty. I mean, the sort of stuff you just can’t get away with at school - getting muddy, making dens, nightwalks, firemaking, staying up late….
This weekend is also about connection to each other and to the natural world. We’ll build a camp community, cook over the fire and learn some amazing new things. Most of all we’ll form new friendships and spend meaningful ‘adult and child time’ out in a beautiful wildwood setting.
"Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the mountains and the stars up above. Let them look at the beauty of the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. They will then begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education" David Polis
Leader: Mark Sears
Mark joined us in 2018 following 3 1/2 years growing The Wild Network from a film led movement to a thriving community of people seeking to rewild childhood. Mark brings with him many years of experience from the creative industries and he now works on projects that lead to the rewilding of people, organisations and communities. Mark was one of the first cohort of 'Wolves' on the Call of the Wild programme and is now exploring ways for WildWise to develop new programmes around organisational rewilding. As well as the office you are most likely to find Mark on, or in the River Dart, and exploring the wild land of Dartmoor.
