Friday - 23rd September 2022:
Arrive at Borwick Hall, our accommodation for the night, to meet your Adventure Breaks host and other guests.

We'll cook up some pasta and have a social dinner - feel free to bring a drink. 

Saturday - 24th September 2022:

After breakfast, drive to some nearby woods to start the day's learning and practising new skills. We'll build shelters to sleep in, make tea on a fire we've created, and in the evening we'll enjoy some stargazing (sky permitting!) and chatting with new friends before retiring to our shelters for a well earned sleep.

Sunday - 25th September 2022:
We'll cook pancakes for breakfast on our fire, then have a walk through the woods. You'll learn more about the environment around us; from edible plants and berries to poisono
us trees and other resources, deer or tracks we may come across - this is a fascinating part of the weekend. A pub lunch on Sunday rounds off the event nicely, leaving you plenty of time to travel home, shower and enjoy a well earned rest!

Food and Drink

We'll send you pre-event information prior to the event, including recommended food to bring. We'll also provide a vegetarian soup and ingredients for bread to bake by the campfire. 

We have cool bunkhouse style accommodation for the Friday night at Borwick Hall.

On Saturday we'll sleep in the shelters we've built.

If you don't have your own sleeping bag, you can find them here (please choose men's/women's).

In the unlikely event that we cannot go ahead with the adventure due to Coronavirus or associated restrictions, guests will be able to rebook for an alternative date or event.
