I'm a Teenager Get Me Outa Here!
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover". Mark Twain
‘I’m a Teenager – Get Me Outa Here!’ recognises that youths need challenges and adventures, risks and role-models, community and resilience. WildWise have put together an exceptional team of qualified, and experienced instructors to offer an immersive programme of indigenous skills and wisdom.
These 3 camps are designed for 12-16 year olds who need to escape from the the stresses and strains of modern life. They are for teenagers who need to spend the day in where there is no wifi but where a much better connection is guaranteed. Our aim is to make the most of what wild nature can offer to meet the wildness of youth with an exciting camp full of meaningful activity that will develop skills and confidence, and help take an important step or two on the road towards maturation.
A syllabus of survival skills will be taught across all 3 camps that include firecraft, woodcraft, shelter building and wild food foraging as well as natural navigation. There will also be the opportunity on one of the camps to canoe on the river. We will offer excursions into the darkness and create the camp community around the hearth, with stories, music and good conversation about growing up in a volatile, uncertain world.
