Summer Camp Testimonials

In Spring of each year, we host a series of Open Days, where families can spend a day in the woods learning all things bushcraft and seeing Camp Wilderness first-hand. Just like our summer camps, we keep it adventurous and activity-filled for everyone to enjoy regardless of age - it's all about the experience of going back-to-nature and creating new memories. You can read more about those here:

We also have some parent testimonials from the wild summer of 2016 below:

My son has now been four years in a row. It is his highlight of the year!
My daughter completed her 4th or 5th camp this summer, she has been coming since she was 12 and did a school trip she is now 16 and has a passion for the outdoors and a lot more respect for the environment than most of girls her age.
This is the one camp my son is desperate to go on every year, he absolutely loves it! Your team's enthusiasm and obvious love of the outdoors is incredible. Thank you!
The quality of your instructors is what makes Camp Wilderness to exceptional. Over the 4 years that Amy has attended, they have always maintained the right level of authority and friendliness and have given the kids increasing responsibility / freedom which they have really enjoyed. It's the highlight of her summer. Even though we go on some fantastic family holidays, Camp Wilderness is always the even that she most looks forward to all year.
As reported by my son... "It was a really enjoyable week. If you are going without anyone you know, don't worry because you will make loads of friends. I loved spending the week outside and building a camp. All of the activities were great fun. There wasn't a single thing I didn't enjoy!”
All children should experience this kind of adventure. It's a fantastic experience and something they will always remember and treasure.
I could not recommend Camp Wilderness highly enough to other parents!! My daughter has been into camp 2 years running and each time has marched out to the forest with the biggest grin on her face and so many exciting tales to tell. These memories will last a lifetime. Thank you Camp Wilderness, such a special experience.
My twin boys of very different characters both had a fantastic time and enjoyed all the different qualities. They came home exhausted but wanting more, singing all the way! I don't think I'll get away with not sending them again!
It was a truly great experience for our daughter (aged 10). We were a little worried at first as it was her first time away from home on her own, and for a full five days without knowing anybody. But we needn't have been - she came back buzzing with excitement and full of stories of everything that went on. The tutors were obviously really committed and fun and she really appreciated the cook and all the interesting food. It's fair to say that she absolutely loved the whole experience! She will probably be coming back with her younger sister next year.
I was so nervous about my son going on Camp Wilderness having had a couple of sleepover disasters. He had the time of his life and I'm not sure he missed home once! I will definitely be booking for next summer and would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you Camp Wilderness!
My daughter had an amazing time on Camp Wilderness Summer 2016. I cannot recommend this highly enough to all parents. Came out of camp filthy and smiling, what more could you ask for?
Just an absolute heaven for kids - this is the 4th year our Son has attended - he loves it and comes home full of it and exhausted and tells us all his adventures . Highly recommend this to anyone it’s great for kids - gets them out doors for a whole week and fun for the parents too. Must add that all the team are fantastic too and the kids build up great bonds with them over their time at the camp.
Overall a great experience - my son said it was "better than excellent"
