Now in its third year, this innovative weekend festival of immersive adventure and music, located in a Kentish heritage forest, is the ideal summer hideout for those longing to escape the pressures and mundanity of modern life. Wildfire Adventure Camp is the perfect place to try something new, meet new friends, and feel a great sense of achievement, whilst rediscovering that wonderful childlike sense of fun and curiosity. Everyone at Wildfire Adventure Camp can participate in a whole programme of varied communal activities that test strength, creative thought, and challenge mental resources.
The focus is on immersing yourself in active days of accomplishment (or at least trying your best) during the daylight hours. There’s an incredible choice of over 80 pursuits comprising expeditions, bushcraft, artistry, engineering and adventure sports, which can all be booked in advance and, more importantly, are included in the overall ticket price. Then, as darkness falls and the sun goes down, Wildfire is transformed into a hedonistic utopia of live music, crazy fun and unabashed revelry. The award-winning team behind LeeFest curate a diverse music programme, so expect a quality line up.
Wildfire also brings an analogue-only approach to encourage this warm and welcoming face-to-face gathering, providing a refreshing alternative to today’s constant noise and 247 alerts. The use of mobile phones is discouraged. Quite a challenge in itself. But then…..
Wildfire Camp is a challenge Only the Curious can meet.
