Why come to the 3 day family camp?
We have a great emphasis on community and connection with each other and the world around us , creating bonds that last forever , within your family and circling back to nature and all that surrounds you . These bonds are essential for our well-being and to live lives with a deeper purpose and meaning.
Family camps can be very powerful, deepening the connections between the whole family. Getting ourselves
back to being in tune with nature, can be very emotional and challenging, but will always bring us a deep
sense of elation and belonging in the end, which is so important now we are in this new technological era.
Be prepared to switch off your phones for 3 days , and tune out of all your troubles , stresses and daily
thoughts ! This is a immersive nature retreat to get you back to yourself and de- stress!
Learning Bushcraft will make you a stronger person, nature will make you more patient , focused , and aware . Connecting with animals and plants will deepen your empathy for the planet and thus create respectful and responsible adults that will take care of our planet rather than abuse it , as we see now .
Children and parents can strengthen their bonds, this is a deep and powerful course for every family to come together and re-connect, so especially on these 5 day camps we have a lot of time to experience many things together and you will take back home so many wonderful and joyous memories.
By the end of this course you will be on your way to know how to thrive out in the wild, we will give you a lot of knowledge on how to commune with our earth in a real and dynamic way.
This course is designed to be intensive and to slowly remove and shred those layers of city life that are in the way of us finding our true selves.
The evenings will be for playing music, singing and storytelling around the fire and of course primitive
This is really a fun packed week away, it's going to be magikal ! There will be time for you and time for your kids run free and time for all of you to play together, leaving you with the most enchanted feeling inside and out .
There will also be some time for the adults to be heard and for conversation to be opened up around
parenting and indigenous ways about bringing up your children. This is very important as now we see a
huge disconnection in modern society between us and our beloved ones.
