“If a child is to keep alive her inborn sense of wonder, she needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with her the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” – Rachel Carson

An opportunity for girls and women to spend meaningful time together in nature. Nurture your relationships with each other and the natural world, foster new friendships and become part of a supportive community of women in a beautiful woodland setting, whilst learning new skills.

Channel your wild and untameable beasts within! Indulge your wild curiosity and run barefoot through the woods, become animal, play with fire, chop wood, learn wild crafts, sleep under the stars, use tools, forage, sing and tell stories around a communal fire under a canopy of ancient beech trees and stars.

*Open to everyone who identifies as female or non-binary.
