FOOD & WATER

There is drinking water on site if you need to refill water bottles or flasks. You can wash your plates and bowls, there will be water and hygiene points on camp. You will be sent camp food ideas, a kit list and location details via email after booking. Please be aware that this particular camp is catered towards young people and families.

The camp is self-catered on the first day, so please bring a packed lunch and some snacks. You might get peckish whilst shelter building. You also need to bring enough  food for dinner time. This will be cooked over your personal camp fire. 

Breakfast is provided the next day if requested. The sound of the flute calls you for breakfast time, around 8am. For adults, you will be served a traditional Middle Eastern dish called "foul" which is warm, nourishing and vegan. It has been well received on previous camps. Children have the option of porridge using coconut milk and served with fresh bananas, apples, honey, cinnamon or maple syrup. 

AWARENESS

Please be aware that there are no toilets on site so you'll be going back to basics. Think like a wild cat. Woodland safety & awareness will be shared on arrival. 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.

Please understand that this experience is encouraging

self-reliance, personal reliance and responsibility. You will be camping independently and cooking food over an open fire come rain or shine, so be prepared with back up snacks. Shelter building takes time and energy & you need to adapt to the weather conditions on site. Don't expect a walk in the park. British weather is unpredictable, however, adopting survival skills supports and empowers you. Once you gain the specific knowledge, the elements will not stop you from surviving a night in the woods.

In the outdoors we tend to say "if it isn't raining then it isn't training!"

FAQ’S

How old do children need to be to attend? 

Children must be 6+ years old to attend camp. There will be bushcraft knife work, fire lighting skills and shelter building. Shelter building requires all hands on deck.

What do I need to bring?

You will be provided with a kit list via email before arriving on camp. Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and dress for the woods. Good outdoor boots or trainers are required as woodland floor may slippery or muddy in wet weather.

What do I wear?

In hot weather, please make sure you bring a pair of shorts and t-short. A sun hat and sun glasses are useful. Whatever the weather, bring warm clothing as British weather is unpredictable.

A warm jumper or hoodie for night time and a good jacket throughout the day to keep you warm, just in case. 

Please bring a light water proof jacket, you can buy these cheap from any big retailer, go to the camping or outdoor section.

You don’t need to buy lot of expensive outdoor gear for this experience, but if you live in England, then you understand what the unpredictable weather can be like. Please bring some warm thick socks for night time. Jeans aren’t that great in the outdoors, if they get wet or muddy, it gets uncomfortable.

Are there any toilets?

There are no toilets on site so please be prepared in going back to the basics. Bring enough toilet tissue and hand sanitiser for the day or overnight camp. You will be given a woodland awareness briefing that will prepare you for your all wild experience. You’ll be out of the comfort zone but it’s all part of the experience.

Shall I bring a first aid kit?

Please bring a small first aid kit with you on overnight camps. Plasters, anti-septic cream, anti-histamine.if you suffer from any allergies please bring appropriate medications along. Wildeye Adventures is not responsible for carrying any personal medications. Please bring insect repellent and suncream for hot weather. 

Is there parking?

There is no car park but there is parking on site for cars. 

You will be instructed on arrival. Look out for Wildeye Adventures staff in high visible jackets who will guide you. You'll be sent directions prior to attending.

Are there any ticks or mosquitoes?

There have been minimal cases of ticks in these woods. However, there is deer around. And where there are deer, there are ticks dwelling in the bracken ferns. Always check the body throughly after visiting any woodland, even the hard to see & reach areas. Get a family member to assist you if need be. 

Lyme disease is caused by ticks carrying the infection and if untreated can lead to serious illness if left un-treated.

In the summer around sunset times in the fields or around the lake, there may be mosquitoes and horse flies so please do bring insect repellant.

In the woods, camp fires smoke helps to keep the bugs away.

What wildlife will I see?

This really depends on how quiet and sneaky you can be. There is deer on both woodland sites we operate on.

Maybe in the morning times, or around sunset time, you may spot a deer.

Deer has been spotted on both our sites on past camps. You’ll have to have a quiet wonder and see what you can find.
