Family Nature Connection Summer Camp
From 4pm on the 3rd to 10am on the 7th August 2020
The Family camp is for families who want to take time out to reconnect with each other, the nature around them and their own creative and wild selves.
Inspirational activities, with time to play, relax and deepen your relationship with nature.
The camp is gently led by Chris Holland, a nature connection facilitator, bushcraft teacher, storyteller and musician with over 15 years of experience running camps for children and families. In the healthy kitchen is Jo, a local chef, yogini and smallholder helping us connect with the ingredients and the seasons through her delicious cooking.
The flow of the day includes breakfast, a morning circle and activity session. After lunch there is time for dreaming, wandering or siesta before tea and cake and an afternoon activity option followed by the evening meal. In the evening we gather again for story of the day, some storytelling and an optional night game or naturalist activity. There are bats, nightjars and even beavers and otters nearby.
Introducing your chef - Jo
I love the way the cycles of the seasons connect me to the food I want to eat. I love to grow my own food and being close to the land with a fork in my hand is where you will find me in my happy place.
Cooking simple delicious meals with whole ingredients that have just been harvested and sharing them with others is my favourite thing to do. I also teach cooking workshops designed to empower people to develop and trust their intuition and feel more joyful as they grow their confidence in the kitchen.
I am excited and honoured to be part of this Family Nature Connection Summer Camp and look forward to nourishing you around the table.
During this Summer Camp I will be serving you delicious locally grown seasonal food. We will be plastic-free and zero waste but full of taste. Eating this way helps to plug us ito the vitality of our surroundings, we might even find some wild and foraged foods to add to our meals.
There will be opportunities to come and chat about the kitchen ethos and the chance to get involved in a healthy snack making workshop. jotytherleigh.com
