What you'll do

Arrival and Activities

Arrive at 14.00 and you will be taken to your campsite where you can settle in, before the activities begin. You’ll start your weekend with some deer butchery, axe throwing, archery and firelighting, all led by your knowledgable and entertaining guides. Enjoy a proper venison stew for dinner at 7ish, then relax with a couple of beers (that you’ll need to bring yourself) by the campfire in the forest, and stay in comfortable tents overnight.

Watersports

Make your own breakfast using your campfire (and hopefully the fire lighting skills you learned last night!) then meet your instructors at 9:30 for your chosen activity.

You’ve got the choice between coasteering, stand-up paddleboarding, or sea kayaking.

This will take up to three hours, before you depart at around 12:30 that day.

Location

You’ll be staying in your own personal campsite in Norden Wood.

You will have your own campfire and camping area, but there is another site nearby which you may be able to hear if another group has booked it out.

Your instructor will meet you at ‘Norden Park and Ride’ and direct you to a place up the road where you can park for free.
