Wild Village Family Camps
WILD VILLAGE FAMILY CAMPS are an invitation for kids and their families to explore the natural world, play with earth based skills and be deeply nourished through village connection.
10th - 14th April, 2017 Glenreagh, NSW
The WILD VILLAGE will become our basket of exploration - a safe space to leave behind the ways of our day to day lives and as an organic tribe explore earth based family relating. As a Wild Village we will take a deep dive into remembering your family’s place within the natural world.
Kids - Every morning the kids will be offered to gather up and head away from camp on a guided roam into the bush. All family members are welcome to join in. At all times the kids will have skilled bush skills mentors at their side – guiding, deepening and protecting their play. The group will be back in camp in time for lunch and an afternoon of relaxed Village time.
Families - Core nature connection skills will also be offered each morning to any family members (kids included) who choose to stay close to the centre of our village.
Workshops in Primitive Fire Making, Basket Weaving, Awareness Skills and Indigenous Yolngu Parenting Principals will be shared. Participation in any activity offered is optional.
The WILD VILLAGE family experience will focus on deelpy relaxing into our wild surrounds so we can organically move through our days with resting, playing, learning and yarning.
The kids will be free to move in and through the area as their instincts dictate and, as per a truly indigenous tribe experience, will be warmly welcomed into every aspect of our Village community.
“Nature Philosophy’s WILD VILLAGE FAMILY CAMPS are pathways for families to honour the rightness of our existence in the modern world and nourish ourselves as the seeds from which powerful, loving earth based villages grow…”
