The location for the Camp was in the Midland, set in a peaceful, idyllic, 10 acre organic orchard, set in Shropshire’s rolling hills.

This Themed Camp combined the opportunity to join a Nearly Wild Camping social event along with the opportunity to learn from an experienced thematic provider. This first one focused on bushcraft.

Here is what some of the Members said about the Experience Weekend:

  • “It’s been really fun”. (6 year old).
  • “The pace is lovely”.
  • “I’m a bit bowled over by what you’re all giving. I see your passion”.
  • “Being a social means that you don’t need to break the ice; it’s a real game-changer”. It
    helps having a bit of focus, enjoys the skillshare.
  • “It’s fun, I enjoy being with people with similar interests.”.

  • “Socially it’s fun, I had a really good evening last night with people I’ve only just met.

  • “A fantastic opportunity to take time out of a busy life”

  • “Brilliant”.

  • “It’s been really good. I don’t often do things like this, but I’ve found it really accessible, lovely
    people and we’ve done some really interesting things. I would definitely recommend it”.
