Adults

There is absolutely no reason why the kids should have all the fun. Wildly Curious also runs sessions for adults....

Scroll down for information on Training and CPD, Work Events, Hen Days, Campfire Menopause Cafe and Twilight Sessions.

Training and CPD

We run professional development training sessions for adult groups - days or half days, for those working in outdoor education or running youth groups. We can tailor our training package according to your group's needs. There can be a focus on pure bushcraft skills or we can combine that with group management strategies.

 

  • Using Sharp Tools With Groups

  • Using Fire With Groups

  • Campfire Cooking

  • Woodcraft and Whittling

....and so on...

We have recently run training sessions for the BCN Wildlife Trust and the Woodcraft Folk.

"I am really inspired to run whittling sessions for children now. It is the best CPD session I have ever been on - and as an ex-secondary school teacher - I have been on 100s! Thank you for a fantastic day."

Work Events

Whether your focus is on team-building or just having a fun day out with your work colleagues away from the screens, Wildly Curious can provide you with a tailored package. 

 

  • Bushcraft - firelighting, sharp tools, water filtration, shelters, wild food, campfire cooking etc.

  • Survival scenarios - we can provide an immersive and enjoyable narrative to base your experience on. From rescuing hypothermic team members, to escaping raging flood waters and building bridges.

  • The Cambridge Challenge (half day): The University Of Cambridge has put together a crack team of covert trouble-shooters to deal with unique and challenging incidents around the city. You are part of that crack team. These incidents will test both your nerve and your skills. Have you got what it takes?

  • Archery

We have recently run a corporate day for Arm:

"Thank you for a fab day! You guys were so well prepared with such a great set-up. We went to the pub after and only realised after the fact how smokey we all were!"

Hen Days

If lurching from one bar to another wearing a pink feather boa and tiara isn't really your thing, why not choose a Wildly Curious hen event? If you and your friends love the outdoors, have always wanted to learn how to light a fire without matches and make something from natural materials, try our hen day with a difference. Lots of options to choose from to tailor your package.

  • Bushcraft basics - fire lighting, sharp tool use etc.

  • Campfire cooking

  • Wild crafts - whittling, willow work, balm making, wreaths, Dutch arrows etc.

  • Archery

  • Survival school - We'll teach you the skills to survive and then let you loose in your own survival scenario with lots of enjoyable challenges

Tiaras optional....

Full day and half day packages with or without catering available.

"Thank you so much Mel! I'm so glad we did a session with you, made me realise how much I didn't know but how much I want to learn."

Campfire Menopause Cafe

We definitely need a better name for this, but nevertheless it is exactly what it sounds like! An evening session for women in the perimenopause, menopause or post menopause to get together, cook, eat, maybe craft and chat over the campfire. We don't claim to have all the answers, but it's great to spend time sharing experiences and tips.

Our next Cafe evening is on Thursday 7th July. Get in touch if you're interested in coming along.

"Such a great night, amazing food and company. I didn't think that anything I cooked over an open fire would tastte like that. So inspiring!! Looking forward to the next one."

"Thanks all for the get-together - was so nice to listen and share with friendly and understanding ears around a fire (and with delicious food!)"
