Our "Family Back to Nature Camps" will give families an opportunity to enjoy a unique wild camp experience in the woods at our private wilderness site near Rathdrum in County Wicklow.
Family members can simply choose to enjoy the warmth and glow of the campfire or join in on our day and evening activities covering subjects from our Natural Living Skills programme. There will also be games and challenges, night walks and storytelling in the woods etc. and of course cooking treats over the fire.
Choose to sleep either in a tipi, tree tent or single camping hammocks depending on your numbers. Alternatively for those adventurous ones in the family, we'll help you build your debris shelter but you must sleep in it!
There is one area where there are 4 tipis close to each other and share a communal firepit sheltered under a large parachute. It also includes a communal seating area with bench seating and a long table. This area is perfect for larger family groups/ gatherings.
Families who may prefer some privacy, we have a small number of stands that you can choose from that will have its own sheltered fire pit.
A catering and BBQ menu is available to book. Please contact us for details. However, if families decide to cook themselves, we can offer meal ideas. You may want to bake your own baguettes or pizzas using one of our cast iron Dutch ovens? We also have kitchen sets including single ring gas cooker, pots & pan.
Our camp is located in a beautiful private woodland environment and in keeping with this, our facilities are basic. We have an eco friendly toilet block consisting of composting toilets with hand sanitizers but we don't have electricity or running water. Drinking water and other supplies can be purchased from the local Centra in Rathdrum village. There is a river and a stream meandering through the site where guests can collect water for washing.
Price includes accommodation and workshops or activities on site.
