Overview

What is Wolf Pack?

The ‘Wolf Pack’ programme recognises that boys of a certain age need challenges, adventures, risks and role-models. Our programme facilitates a group of young men on a journey of discovery. Our aim is to make the most of what the natural world can offer with an exciting programme of meaningful activity that will develop skills, confidence and leadership potential.

We invite you to come and learn some new skills, expand your awareness, develop yourself, make new friends, tackle challenges, have some great fun, be surrounded by the power of nature, and maybe take an important step or two on the road towards manhood.

Participants will have the opportunity to get close to nature, to relax, grow up a bit, discover more about themselves, and be energised and inspired by some quality time out in the wilds of the Westcountry!

Where will we be?

The adventure begins with a walkabout on Dartmoor, travels the Dart river by Canadian canoe from Totnes towards the sea, visits the wild coastline (around East Prawle to East Portlemouth) and completes with an adventure in the woods in the Dart Valley.

What will we be doing?

Our syllabus will include bushcraft, foraging, fishing, campcraft, nature awareness skills, hunting skills and a final Quest. There will be traditional stories told around the campfire, stargazing, games and focused dialogue, as well as just hanging out together in the peace and beauty of the wildwood, moor, beach and river valley.

How will the camp be?

This is a relatively small programme – typically for between 8-12 boys. This encourages the group to gel and helps the participants to feel supported and develop a sense of community.

What is included?

All food and equipment is provided on these events.
