WOMEN’S INTRODUCTION TO WILD CAMPING
at nature’s pace

£150.00

Have you always wanted to try a wild camping adventure but lack the confidence, know-how and navigation skills? The thought of wild camping can be daunting, so this fabulous small-group, women-only, 2 day trip is packed with fun, experiential learning in a safe and supportive environment led by qualified instructors.

In this hectic world, the need to find space, time and solitude combined with the incredible healing power of being at one with nature is more vital than ever.

Kickstart your journey to getting out exploring the great outdoors, immersing yourself in the stunning Lake District landscapes and discovering the fundamentals of navigation, backpacking and leave-no-trace wild camping.

This weekend is designed for women who think they can’t. We’re here to help you learn that you can!

Women’s Introduction to Wild Camping is delivered in partnership with my friend Claire Wickham of Walks for Wellbeing.
