"This is utopia!"

Vice

Deep in the forest there’s a secret camp of bygone days – its called Wildfire. For adults only, Wildfire has an abundance of adventure activities to fill the long summer weekend, the daytimes at Wildfire are challenging and inspiring.


As an official 2017 camper, you will enroll in up to 10 activities to take part in over the weekend.

Throw yourself into our huge choice of wildly varied pursuits from the fields of bushcraft, artistry, expeditions, engineering, adventure sports and wellness. Here is just a selection of the spectacular range available to this year’s adventurers:

Extreme Hill Rolling (Zorbing)

Ever wondered what it’s like to be trapped inside a ball and flung at 30 miles an hour downhill? Well, now’s the time to find out. This is old fashioned rolling on a hill.. taken to the extreme. Try to steer your sphere into the point-winning targets and avoid the obstacles, whilst making it down the wildfire slopes in a winning time. You can rack up even more points for your patrol by hill running ahead of your fellow adventurers when they are the ones doing the rolling and reaching the bottom without getting splatted.

Hammer Horror Mud Run

Run for your lives through the wildfire woodland, ducking, dodging and screaming away from a horrifying array of beasts. Frankenstien, The Mummy, Dracula and scores of the undead will all be trying to grab the 3 tags you’ll be wearing on a belt, representing your heart, lungs and brain. Make it through the gauntlet with all 3 intact and you’ll be given a survivors welcome. Lose more than one, and you’ll be joining the ranks of the undead in trying to catch those still living.

Adventure Sports

Archery Battles

Archery Battles: paintball, but with bows and arrows. Yes, you’ll shoot someone. And yes, you’ll get shot. In this intense and exciting combat sport you’ll use foam-tipped arrows to shoot at your opponents, ducking behind obstacles and trying to avoid being eliminated. Our expert instructors will teach you some tricks and skills to get you through your battles, preparing you to duck and dodge, and even catch arrows as they whizz past your head.

Wild Obstacle Course

Including open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud, this obstacle course will have you climbing, jumping, wading and crawling. Test your skill and strength or simply flail wildly through it in a fit of laughter. Either way, you’re going to get to know the wildfire estate rather intimately (by this we mean end up with mud in places you can’t reach).

Reaching up to 13 metres skyward (the equivalent of a three story building)! Adventurers will first receive tuition in the techniques of group rope safety. The team will then work together, taking
