FULL DAY IN THE WOODS - 10AM - 5PM (7hrs)

From 10am to 17:00pm. A full day in the woods allows you to take time practicing learned survival skills in ta woodland environment.

With the opportunity to practise natural shelter building, discover different fire lighting techniques,useful knots, handy camp crafts, learn how to use a bushcraft knife and learn more ancient woodlands in the UK.

You will create a group natural shelter, be given a demonstration on how to put up a hammock and basha shelter and the core essentials of setting up camp in a woodland environment. 

Learn how to create and maintain your own fires, about useful tinders & fuels and practise different fire lighting techniques. You will discover helpful camp craft techniques, useful knots and learn about different trees, fungi and plants.

A full day in the woods gives you the chance to get creative, set the imagination loose, practise learned bushcraft skills and spend time building relationships in nature.

OVERNIGHT CAMPS - 10AM - 10AM NEXT DAY (24hrs)

Arrive on camp for 10am. Spend most of the day gaining bushcraft & survival knowledge and be taught the essential skills required to set you up for a night in the woods. Create your own personal camp, make shelter and learn how to build and maintain a fire.

Tarps are included and supplied overnight course. You will learn how to create a natural shelters to keep warm and dry. However, you have the option of hiring a hammock  (£10 per person) keeping you off the forest floor.

 

Learn how to create fire without using matches or lighters. Discover how to use a bushcraft knife and carve wood. Learn about useful trees, plants and fungi and relevant skills that will allow you to spend a warm and comfortable night in the woods. You will be going back to nature and be inspired in becoming more self-sufficient.

 

After a creative day of training and guidance, you will be prepared with the required education, enough to be responsible for you own personal well being overnight. You will have a spot in solitude away from the communal area. For a more secluded and private experience in the woods.

Wildeye Survival Camp is not a bubble wrapped experience.

When the sun begins to set our instructors will be on site, but out of site. Your personal health and safety is in your own hands for a night of independent camping. You will be free to explore the site and have plenty of time to spent in solitude.

You will be left to fend for yourself, however, before sunset time, a check up will take place, just to make sure your shelter is water proof and adequate. When the sun goes down, you are on your own.

We encourage to set free your independence & aim to help you build self-confidence, enough to be self- reliant on an independent overnight camp in the woods.

The next morning when you wake to the sound of the singing birds and sunlight bursting through the trees (hopefully!) you will re-light yours fires for breakfast - breakfast may be included in camp if requested (warm hearty & healthy delicious middle eastern vegetarian breakfast)

You will begin dismantling shelters and put all fires out in the correct manner. Hopefully you may have spotted some deer, heard woodpeckers in the early morning or owls in the night.

We always apply 'Leave No Trace' to each camp and leave the woods how they were found. Take care of nature and it will take care of you.

By the end of the experience, you will have left feeling a sense of empowerment and rejuvenation. Spending the night in nature and around trees is scientifically proven for having positive health benefits to the mind, body and spirit.

 

Stay human and go wild, for a while.

CAMPING OPTIONS:

Tarps are included and supplied on our overnight courses, allowing you to stay dry sleeping on the forest floor. We encourage building and in sleeping a natural shelter, however, there's the option of hiring a hammock (£10) keeping you off the forest floor. You can use the tarp provided as a shelter over the hammock and will be given training on how to set them up.

We strongly recommend immersing yourself in the outdoor experience, leaving tents behind and try sleeping with what nature provides (build a natural shelter)

The main campsite is based inside woodlands, however, the woodland area is surrounded by fields you can camp on if you wish to be out in the open. In this case you will need to bing a tent, but this takes away from the  survival experience. Remember that you are warmer in the trees and no camp fires can be lit on the fields unless you have a suitable fire dish.

For overnight camps, you are required to bring a sleeping bag, foam matt (to put underneath sleeping bag on the floor) and a travel pillow. These specifics items are not supplied by Wildeye Adventures on camp.

HIRE A HAMMOCK: £10 OVERNIGHT CAMP

WOODLAND LOCATIONS:

We run our courses in woodlands based in Kent. In either the 110 acres of ancient deciduous woodland located in High Brooms or the 25 acre ancient woodland located in Sevenoaks.   

The High Brooms site has some history to it with archeological findings encountered and studied there. There is wildlife on both sites and if you are quiet enough in the morning time or around sunset you might be lucky enough to spot deer.

Remember that wildlife only wonders closer when you are extremely quiet with no quick movements.

You have the choice between different location spots within the woodlands to pitch camp. You will be free to explore the environment. 

FAQ's

Are there any toilets?

There are no toilets in the woods, so please be prepared in going back to basics.

Bring toilet tissue, hand sanitiser and some paper bags to burn waste over fires or put in rubbish bags

What kit shall I bring?

You will be provided with a kit list via email after booking on things you will need. Or can read our "Kit List" page on our blog.

Don't believe that you need to buy lots of expensive outdoor equipment for this experience. If you are camping overnight, you will need a sleeping bag and roll matt (to keep you off the forest floor) and a simple first aid kit. For hot weather, bring sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat.

What clothes do I wear?

Please wear suitable outdoor clothing (no jeans on overnight camps please) take warm clothing, good socks, a good pair of outdoor shoes or boots. Bring a waterproof jacket. Waterproof trousers are optional. 

Will I be comfortable sleeping on the forest floor?

On overnight camps, you are provided with a tarp (shelter) you can build your own natural shelter or have the option of hiring out a hammock and basha sheet keeping you off the forest floor. You will be given training on how to make your shelter warmer and more comfortable. It depends on how much effort you put into creating your shelter. Make sure it's waterproof!

FAQ's

Is there any water?

Please bring a filled up bottle of water with you. There is water on our woodland sites if you need to refill. There will be hot water available for teas and coffee.

Can I cook my own food over a fire?

You can only do this on overnight camps. Day camps are self-catered. You are required to bring along a packed lunch and snacks for the duration of the day.

What if it's raining?

British weather can be unpredictable and we can get all the seasons in one day. It's advisable to bring waterproof clothing if you suspect the weather will be a bit wet. If it isn't raining, than it isn't training! However, in cases of heavy rain and wind, camps may be subject to rescheduling or cancellation for safety reasons. Refunds are provided, if this is the case.

Any questions we haven't answered?

We are happy to answer any questions if you have any. Please contact us.

You are always welcome to get in touch if you wish to organise your own personal woodland experience for family or friends.

If you own suitable private woodland and wish to collaborate with Wildeye Adventures in the aims of promoting outdoor & environmental initiatives. Please contact us, we are always looking for land owners we can work together with. Thank you.

Do not leave any litter in the woods. Please do not burn plastic on camp fires as this can create toxic chemicals which may be harmful to health and the environment. Please do not burn any cans or glass bottles on fires. If not burned out properly they can leave behind sharp objects which may harm wildlife.
