What kind of music can I expect in the evenings?

Camp Wildfire transforms into a wild forest party at night. It has been curated by the multi-award winning team behind LeeFest and Neverworld, so you know it’s going to be excellent. There is more info on our Music pages We have a very eclectic taste and are incredibly passionate about music that rouses the soul and makes people either cry with joy, or want to dance.

What is the average age of people who attend?

People who attend Camp Wildfire tend to be aged between 25 and 50 with the average age being about 33. That said, our aim is to make the event as inclusive as we can for people of all ages and backgrounds; the most important thing being that everyone onsite shares the same mindset. If you’re wanting to make the most of every minute in life, whether it be zipping around on a quadbike or relaxing in a hot tub, like meeting wonderful friendly new people, and love a good old dance late into the night then Wildfire is for you and we would love to welcome you into our family.

Sounds like organised fun?

That's exactly what it is!

We are massive geeks about structure and how the right amount of it can unleash wild creativity and create unimagined opportunities for discovery. We pioneered, and have spent years refining, our unique setup so you can pack more adventuring and partying into your weekend at Camp Wildfire than most people can manage in a year! 

If that sounds lame then Camp Wildfire probably isn't for you.

Can I come on my own?

Yes, of course! We've been lucky enough to be joined by lots of solo adventurers each year and look forward to welcoming many more. Unlike other festivals where it can be tricky to make friends, at Camp Wildfire you'll spend all day doing activities together in groups, making it really easy to bond with your fellow campers!

If you're thinking of coming on your own, please do check out our Flying Solo Facebook group, where you can meet other solo adventurers before you arrive!
