The Wild Things

Let the Wild Rumpus Start

If you go into the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise: a Superweek under canvas! We’ll be spending the week with nature, mixing the usual ATE fun and games with bush crafts and exploring the big outdoors. We’ll be skilling you up in forest-living and survival techniques. In the past we’ve built fires and cooked meals on them, honed our woodcraft and knife skills, and built shelters to keep out the weather. Let the Wild Rumpus start!

We’re excited to be bringing The Wild Things to a brand-new centre! Hudnall Park is set in 85 acres of Chilterns parkland, near to Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire. We know you’ll love it!

We’ll be camping in shared group tents, on camp beds or airbeds.

Dates:24th – 31st July 2020
Age:8 – 14 years

In previous years we have…

We have so much fun up our sleeves that we never run the same week twice, so every Superweek is entirely unique. Here are some highlights from previous Wild Things Superweeks:

  • Held a Wild Things Opening Ceremony, complete with Cosy Campfires with hot chocolate, bedtime stories and songs

  • Learnt how to build our own campfires and cooked our breakfast on the fire

  • Built some very high-tech shelters and went on an expedition

  • Helped some pixies defeat the mysterious Mr C.E.Ment who wanted to turn our woods into a cement factory

  • Decorated our tents with fairy lights to transform them into twinkly tented palaces.

  • Built rope swings and made wild musical instruments

We’re taking our tents to Hudnall Park, 85 acres of beautiful Chilterns parkland and woodland with a former art deco mansion at its centre.

“This is by far the best camp Emily has ever been on. There is something about the intentions behind it which means it seems saturated in an empowering, inspiring philosophy which mean the kids really benefit. Thank you for doing this. Companies like this really stand out, and I wish more were like you.” – Parent
