Girls Go Wild! – July 2011

During the Summer holidays we were pleased to host at Plan-It Earth the Girls Go Wild! project, where 6 girls and their Mums were invited to take part in a 2-day camping and bushcraft adventure with loads of activities designed to increase participants confidence within the natural world, themselves and with each other.

Activities included:

  • Setting up camp with Bell Tents.
  • Wild Food Walk.
  • Wild Tea tasting with Netles, gorse flowers and Goosegrass.
  • Making Fire with strikers and matches
  • Safe campfire management.
  • Preparing and cooking fresh mackerel.
  • Camp cookery.
  • Storytelling.
  • Night walk with bat detector and moth trap.
  • Making natural herbal remedies and beauty treatments.
  • Slackline walking

For most of the participants this was the first time they had camped out and many of the activities were new to them. Here are some photos fgrom the two days…

A great few days with all participants getting something out of the experience that they can take back to their own lives.

Many thanks to Rachel and David @ Plan-It Earth Eco project, Windrose for facilitating the herbal remedies and Julie for co-facilitating with me.
