Father and Son Wilderness Challenge

Think you and your Dad would survive in the wild? Put your skills to the test with the Wild things! Father and Son Wilderness Challenge. From the 14th – 15th June 2014, environmental education charity Wild things! invites fathers and sons from across Britain to unleash their inner Bear Grylls by spending a weekend ‘living wild’ on the idyllic Moray Coast.

From the creation of traditional hunting tools to tracking illusive wildlife, the Father and Son Wilderness Challenge is the perfect escape from fast-paced, digital lives. Led by the experienced Wild things! instructors, participants will have the opportunity to spend unique and special time together learning  how to forage for wild foods, light fires as our ancestors would, cook natural delicacies over an open fire, learning useful knife carving skills and build that obligatory man cave (natural shelter) to protect you from the elements.

Suitable for children over the age of eight, the wild weekend is designed to build relationships, increase appreciation of our natural environments and most importantly, ensure participants have fun.

“These guys clearly know what they are about, if they can teach a city boy like me then anybody has a chance. Loved every minute and can’t wait to share my new skills.”  Paul, a previous Wild things! student

For one father and one son, the Father and Son experience will cost £120 for the full weekend (two days, one night). More than one son? Each additional son will cost just £40.
