Wild by Nature Adventure Camp
January 10 - 12, NSW
Ready to be immersed in the wonder and wisdom of the wild?
A chance for families of all forms to create a shared adventure.
This is a new style of Wildcraft Camp, where wild adventures are skillfully encouraged by Wild Guides that cater to the age, interests and abilities of each age group.
5-8 year olds: Mindfully supported wild play and exploration of their natural world; an immersion in story, song, magic and wonder.
9-12 year olds: The freedom to play and explore, but also the invitation to participate in games and activities that develop key wild skills, awareness and movement.
13-16 year olds: A chance to grow through guided games and skill development (fire, shelter, tools and crafts, stalking, ‘hunting’ and ecological knowledge) that prepare them for challenges set at the right level of risk-taking to build confidence, team work and a sense of accomplishment.
For the adults:
Opportunities to interact with each other and their children in a way that promotes mutual respect, understanding and joyful connection. As well as optional sharing and learning of a few wild skills.
The whole experience will be contained within a natural and human community where sharing of stories, song, play and responsibility create a village feel.
In collaboration with Wildcraft Australia
