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.
