"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:

This workshop will guide you through the basics of how to marble onto paper and fabric – a deeply satisfying experience. You will get to experiment with fun patterns and colour. Making your own marbled greeting cards and paper that can be used for book binding or gift wrap.
