WILD CAMPING FOR BEGINNERS

by Adventure Solos

OVERVIEW

Discover the freedom of camping, connect with nature and unlock a whole new world of adventure.

We believe camping is the key to living more adventurously. If you're new to the outdoors and can only do one adventure with us this year, we think this should be it! By the end of this weekend you’ll be all kitted out with brand new gear for you to keep. You'll be confident using it and you’ll have made some new camping-keen friends to plan your own adventures with. The world will be your camping-oyster; you just need to decide where you want to go next! There also an option to learn and practice map reading and navigation skills here.
