Itinerary
Friday - 10th September 2021:
Arrive at Borwick Hall, our accommodation for the night, to meet your Adventure Breaks host and other guests.

We'll cook up some pasta and have a social dinner - feel free to bring a drink. 

Saturday - 11th September 2021:

After breakfast, we meet Ross and venture to some nearby woods to start the day's learning and practising new skills. We'll build shelters to sleep in, make tea on a fire we've created, and in the evening we'll enjoy some stargazing (sky permitting!) and chatting with new friends before retiring to our shelters for a well earned sleep.


Sunday - 12th September 2021:
We'll cook pancakes for breakfast on our fire, then have a walk through the woods. You'll learn more about the environment around us; from edible plants and berries to poisono
us trees and other resources, deer or tracks we may come across - this is a fascinating part of the weekend. The event ends at lunchtime on Sunday leaving you plenty of time to travel home, shower and enjoy a well earned rest!

Food and Drink

We'll send you pre-event information prior to the event, including recommended food to bring. We'll also provide a vegetarian soup and ingredients for bread to bake by the campfire. 


Sleeping
We have cool bunkhouse style accommodation for the Friday night at Borwick Hall.

On Saturday we'll sleep in the shelters we've built.

If you don't have your own sleeping bag, you can find them here (please choose men's/women's).

We expect to be able to run the event under the lockdown easing rules announced in February 2021.
