Father & Son Camping Weekend

Friday 26th - Sunday 28th April 2019


£240 for the weekend for Dad and one son (age 8 and over)
Includes pitch fee for 2 nights & activities for Friday eve & Saturday

 

Celebrate those last few days of school holidays with some quality time together on our Father and Son Camping Weekend.


Make the most of this great opportunity to do some fun things together in the great outdoors. Research shows that quality time with Dad is central to the emotional wellbeing of all children, and being out in nature is such a bonus too.


So you'll arrive sometime during the Friday afternoon, get pitched up and sort out a bite to eat for yourselves before the activities begin with a get together around the fire on the Friday evening just to meet up and get to know each other.


Saturday will be filled with a range of activities including

  • a kayaking tour of the bay with one of the local expert instructors
  • learning ancient bushcraft practices
  • gaining safe and effective knife skills

Saturday evening will be spent around the fire once again to conclude the day and any budding musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments for a bit of acoustic jamming.


On Sunday morning you are free to cook your own leisurely breakfast and pack up to head back home filled with fond memories and a great sense of wellbeing.


There is no food provided on this weekend - that's part of the fun time together. You are welcome to bring your own camping equipment & food or use the cafes & pubs in the village.

An Afternoon with Essential Oils

Saturday 4th May 2019

1.30pm till 4.30pm
 

£15 per person
 

In this afternoon workshop you will have the opportunity to get introduced to a collection of oils, then enjoy some individual play time and exploration, with a meditation. The event will last approx 3 hours including time for refreshments.


As a group we will create and hold a safe, neutral space to delve deeply into and fully return from meditation. In meditation you can look within and take the time and space to hear the wisdom of your heart, then take forward into your life a restored connection to self, to nature and to the Earth. Bringing in pure energies of essential oils, you can work intuitively and/or based loosely on the chakra system. Then take the opportunity to use and integrate these elemental energies to trigger personal shifts and transformation.
 

Hosted by Dawn Fletcher, she is an advocate for natural health and empowerment and has a beautiful collection of essential oils just waiting to be shared with you. The cosy space located on site at Newberry Valley has a lovely energy and is designated to work which benefits the body, mind and soul. The natural beauty of the land here generously lends itself to deeper contemplative awareness.
 

It will be a small group with a maximum of 12 people.
