Activities

Wild yourself with our programme of activities

As well as beautiful glamping accommodation under canvas and our wild camping pitches, Be Wilder Camps sets out to be different with its unique and inspiring programme of activities taking place throughout the summer and our partnerships with local activity providers. The aim of our activity partnership programme for children and adults is to provide experiences to 'wild' ourselves, connect us all deeper with nature, learn new skills, promote our personal health and wellbeing and, more than anything, have a great time. We hope that your time with us will be a few days out of the world to get into the natural world that lies all around us. Participation in all activities is optional.

We aim to ensure there are activities to partake in both on- and off-site throughout weekends and holiday periods as well as additional standalone activities that can be attended by all campers such as storytelling sessions, fireside song circles, movement workshops in the morning, etc. These are all included in your stay.

We have really exciting activities planned for 2022, and will soon be releasing more details here. Stay tuned!

MEET ROSIE

Yoga and Mindfulness Fun With Rosie!We will build strength, balance and co-ordination skills through games and challenges, partner work and relaxation stories.

Rosie is passionate about spreading the magic of Yoga with as many people as possible, and believes in the importance of introducing Yoga and mindfulness to children and teenagers, especially in today's modern stressful world. She creates a safe space in her classes, where it's more important to listen to your body than have the perfect pose, and there is always some fun to be had. (Especially in the kid's classes!)
