Overview

Wild Time programmes offer girls and young women aged between 11 and 17 years an opportunity to ‘grow’ alongside experienced and qualified outdoorswomen to learn bushcraft skills, build confidence, develop a sense of self and have fun outdoors. 

We offer 2 Wild Time Camps tailored to suit the age group: the youngers camp for 11-13 years is in April with a longer camp for 14-17 year olds in August. This will ensure the themes and activities are age appropriate to the group but will also encourage more meaningful connections and the development of a sense of community between the girls.  

For our August camp we will bring a group of girls together to learn new skills and face challenges in the wild; to explore the land by day and night, adventure across moor, woods and rivers to learn more about who they are and what they want from their lives on the threshold of young adulthood.

The adventure includes inner and outdoor challenges, bushcraft, wilderness survival skills, group games, wild walks, environmental art and crafts, and culminates in a final quest! We will cook on open fires, sleep under the stars, share stories as well as just hang out together in the peace and beauty of the wilderness. 

This is not a typical outdoor programme. It has all the adventure you’d expect but with the added power of Rites of Passage.  

Developed by experienced guides and outdoorswomen over years of working with youth, this unique programme offers the right balance of play, adventure and creativity to help girls develop interpersonal skills and inner resources. To enter young adulthood with a deeper sense of self and from a more confident place.

 

WILD TIME OFFERS:
  • Essential outdoor survival skills and bushcraft
  • Outdoor games and campcraft 
  • Quality downtime immersed in nature
  • Connecting with experienced mentors and other girls of around the same age
  • Guided sessions to reflect on your life and look ahead
 
WE AIM TO:
  • Build self-confidence and resilience
  • Honour the diverse story of what it means to be a young woman today
  • Challenge and guide each girl on their journey into womanhood

 

Details will be sent ahead of time to help prepare for the rite of passage element of the programme. And similarly to conclude it, we ask parents and caregivers to be present on the last afternoon of the camp for a closing session.

The cost is £595 per girl. Flexible payment options will be available on request and some concessions may also be available based on financial need and on application (subject to the economy of the programme).
