"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:

Hemp Ice Cream Making

Forget Mr Whippy, it’s all about making your own ice cream from raw natural ingredients like hemp. You’ll be taken through the whole process in this hour and a half workshop, walking away with your very own, hand whipped, home (well, woodland) made ice cream. Just make sure you find the Camp Chiefs and offer them a lick.

Extreme Spelling Bee

Are you the kind of person who recoils at a misplaced letter? Can you spell disassociate – and use it in a coherent sentence? In a digital world overpowered by emojis, acronyms and abbreviations, its time to reclaim real words, spelt as they should be. Each round is filled with increasingly difficult words and their meanings until the final last two adventurers standing go head to head in a nail biting spell-off. Add some physical challenges into the mix and you’ve got yourself some very extreme spelling.

Science & Engineering

Sunprinting

Sun printing, also known as cyanotypes and blueprints – they’re a little bit sciency, a little bit arty and come in any colour you want, as long as it’s blue. You’ll mix up potions, collect flora and fauna to print with, design your fabric, parade to the sun then turn your magical creation into drawstring bags for hiding shiny things, or a rather jaunty neckerchief.

WiIldfire Apothecary
