“Thanks for the Dangerous Weekend experience! In a word: terrific! This is clearly not “just a job” for them, their passion shone throughout the three days”
What is the aim of the camp?
This camp aims to give one parent/carer the opportunity to enjoy special ‘ring-fenced’ time with their child/children to enjoy a range of fun & challenging bushcraft and survival skills activities in a beautiful private woodland location on Dartmoor.
What will we be doing?
The syllabus this weekend sets the participants up with enjoyable, achievable but challenging tasks in a convivial camp atmosphere. You will be learning about the natural environment and a number of tools and skills you need to survive and thrive outdoors.
How will the camp be?
This is a relatively small and friendly camp. Expect to learn some amazing new things, have a good craic around the campfire, make new connections and spend meaningful parent & child/ren bonding time out in a beautiful wildwood setting. There will also be time for some potent stories around the campfire, pertinent to the parent/carer:child relationship.
See details on the practicalities in the Essentials section below including how to reserve a place.
