On this weekend you’ll be:

  • Semi-wild camping for 2 nights at the foot of the South Downs.

  • Saturday: Waking for a gentle outdoor yoga session (weather permitting – in case of rain we have an indoor space!) and simple camp breakfast. Spend the day exploring the South Downs, walking approx 8-9km, learning to navigate or improving your existing skills, with Cathy from Heads Up Navigation.

Group size: Max 10 – we like to keep it small for a more connected experience.

This weekend is for women and those who identify as women. The only requirements are that you can hike comfortably over hilly terrain for a few hours, and have suitable weatherproof attire – this is England after all! Please note this is a ‘back to basics’ weekend with a semi-wild camping experience and minimal facilities – a toilet and sink will be available. We have access to indoor space for yoga and meals if the weather gets too gnarly (aka British!)

Note – we have a small amount of gear we can lend out if you don’t have all the essentials, if you need help please get in touch as early as possible. Please note there is no smoking or vaping allowed at the campground.

Please read our event booking terms and conditions before placing a booking.

CHALLENGE LEVEL **

Our hikes will be hilly, and you’ll need to be able to walk on uneven terrain for 8-9km. We recommend walking poles to reduce knee stress.

No previous navigating experience is necessary, Cathy will be here to guide you and support your journey.

Suitable weatherproof attire is essential, as weather can be unpredictable. Please check the kit list!
