Be aware that there are no toilets in our woods. It's back to the primitive; so think like a wild cat. You'll be advised during woodland awareness on introduction. Bring personal toilet paper & hand sanitiser with you. All personal trash must be taken off site and litter disposed of. Please inform us of any food allergies or intolerances before arriving on camp. Only then may we cater to personal specific needs.
Overnight camps are the best way to immerse yourself in nature and put natural shelter making abilities to the test. Natural shelter building takes time, energy & manual labour. Don't expect a walk in the park.
You are free to decide on the day, using tarps cuts out the hard work of foraging for materials, however, we encourage building nature shelters as it provides a more rewarding experiencing, building something out fo nothing.
Survival skills will test your psychology, creative skills and problem solving abilities.
