GET OUTDOORS. DISCOVER NATURE
NEXT OVERNIGHT CAMP
DATE: 9th & 10th October 2022
BRASTED CHART, SEVENOAKS, KENT
TIME: Sat 10am - Sun 12pm
Wildeye Survival Camp is an 18+ adult only course. Guaranteed to bring out your wild side.
Our courses/camps teach wilderness skills, encourage nature connection and provide the opportunity to camp in solitude. Based in wild-like 23acre private ancient woodland in Brasted Chart in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Learn essential skills of the wild and discover what nature can provide to survive. You will receive clear instructions & practical demonstrations of all bushcraft skills, followed by the opportunity to practise for yourself. Our overnight camps encourage a more secluded & independent experience. After a creative day of survival & bushcraft education, you will be prepared with the relevant and required education, enough to be responsible for your own well being.
Empower yourself with skills that teach self-reliance & personal responsibility. Discover different ways to light and maintain a fire. Try your luck with the bow drill (fire by friction) and learn how to use a bushcraft knife to carve pegs. Discover useful trees, plants & fungi used in bushcraft and learn how to work with nature, rather than against it. Bushcraft and skills of the wild can support you in traveling further, off the beaten track and with less stuff.
You will have the opportunity to explore the woods, find your own patch and set up camp.
The level of difficulty is yours to choose, so don't expect a military style vibe. Constructing natural shelters gives a more rewarding experience, but requires energy consumption and manual labour. Tarps are provided for shelter making & bushcraft hammocks are available on request.
Wildeye instructors will support you during the experience, share knowledge and offer guidance. However, at night time you will be left alone in your camp. Staff will be on site, but out of sight until the next morning.
The sound of a flute calls you to breakfast.
Leave our camps feeling inspired and empowered. Having adopted valuable knowledge & skills that give you the ability to be a more confident explorer.
"WILDERNESS SKILLS HAVE THE ABILITY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE OR THE LIFE OF A COMPANION"
Our instructors will be there throughout the day, feel free to ask as many questions, everyone has their own particular interests. If you would like to challenge yourselves throughout the experience, you are encouraged to create natural shelters. This gives a more for-filling survival experience having created a shelter using what nature provides. If you wish to work less on shelter building, use the provided tarps to create shelter, hammocks are also available on request.
British weather can be unpredictable and unexpected rainfall may result in testing personal abilities. However, survival skills when applied efficiently can create a positive outcome.
Spend the evening how you please, sitting by the fire light (Nature's TV). Take a walk to explore woods and venture to nearby fields for moon watching or star gazing. The evening is what you make of it! Further training commences after breakfast the next morning.
Please bring enough food for the duration of your stay, you might get peckish whilst shelter building, bring back-up snacks & fruit. Breakfast is provided for and the sound of the flute calls you around 7:30-8:30am.
Breakfast provided is a warm, energy boosting, traditional vegan Middle Eastern dish called "Foul". It has been well received on previous camps. Drinking water is available on camp so please bring a refillable water bottle along to refill bottles. Hot water is provided for teas & coffees.
This experience gives individuals the opportunity to spend time in the woods with friends or family left in solitude.
