About this Event

Gather Green - A Family Camping Retreat

Come and discover Gather Green, the home of First Hand Experiences CIC, a not for profit family run organisation that reconnects children with the natural world. Our new, 6 acre plot set on an organic, biodynamic farm, is a wonderful setting for our children's camps and where many 8-14 year olds go on empowering and inspiring journeys of rewilding every summer. A glimpse of the journey we are excited to share with you too.

All profits for this family camping retreat go towards our solar energy fund.

(see more about that below)

Here's a quick summary of what you get..

  • Two nights in a family bell tent and camp beds ready for your arrival
  • 3 meals and 2 snacks over the 2 days prepared by one of our trained natural chefs (organic, vegan and very local!)
  • We will curate a wonderful array of natural experiences that will cater for young and old. Sometimes together, sometimes a part (though this isn't compulsory) like...
  • Harvesting and foraging in and around the farm.
  • A hike up to the ancient woodland for forest school play and exploration
  • Lots of time for cooking with our chef in our converted 'Rebel' kitchen
  • Natural craft in our studio with our resident artist.
  • And of course campfires with music, laughter, words and celebration!

* A full programme will be added in coming weeks

We hope to strike the balance between time where you can take part in an activity yourself and time when you want to experience the time side by side with your children. We will also make sure you have plenty of your own time to just relax and connect with your family.

Our Team for the Day

Leading the camp will be our experienced team of sustainable living enthusiasts with passion and skills in nature, craft and food. They’ll support you and your family to explore and connect with your new environment, community and the art of mindful living. They will bring an unrivalled sense of joy and passion to their role as well as years of experience leading groups of children. All our team have full DBS checks.

Our Need

Despite the hard work of our small team, our camp still needs more investment if our passionate educators are to deliver our exciting programme in a more sustainable way. This fundraising day is a chance for you to support this necessary cause and generate the funds we need to have consistent off-grid energy for our kitchen and reliable hot water for showers. (Yes they can be fresh but we might also be able to provide some fire baths for those really in need of a soak by day 2)

In exchange we will provide you and your family with wonderful experiences that we hope will last long in the memory.

Our ticket prices are set to reflect the value of a rich all day experience with two meals but also so that we can generate the funds we need for our project.
