Our “Family Back to Nature Weekend” this June Bank Holiday Weekend (Sat 2nd – Mon 4th), will offer families an opportunity to spend time in nature together and enjoy a unique wilderness camp experience. This family weekend will be held at our private site located in a woodland setting along the banks of the beautiful river Avonmore.
As part of the Back to Nature theme, our Bushcraft leaders will be onsite to supervise an activities program for those interested in taking part.
I have to emphasise that this is a wilderness site with basic facilities i.e. no running water or electricity. Having said that we do offer an eco friendly toilet block consisting of composting toilets and hand sanitiser dispensers.
The weekend tipi package is €360 for 2 nights – for up to 6 people. A supplementary charge of €15 for each extra person if there are more than 6 applies.
Package includes the following:
• 6meter diameter single pole Norwegian canvas tipi
• Separate heavy duty PVC groundsheet
• Centre carpets
• 6 pallet beds and 6 sleeping mats
• interior and exterior lighting.
• 5 litre container for harvesting your own water for washing etc.
• Wash kit – includes basin, sponge, eco dish wash
There is one area where 4 tipis share a communal firepit sheltered under a parachute and include a communal kitchen suitable for prepping your meals etc. This area is perfect for larger family groups/ gatherings. A large 10ltr kettle will always be on the boil once the fire is lit and a selection of cast iron cookware is available for hire if required…
If you prefer to have your own sheltered campfire, we have a small number of stands that you can choose from that will include an off the ground fire pit.
Bottled mineral water will be available onsite and all other supplies available in Rathdrum, 5 minutes drive away.
