Family rewilding weekends
Retreat, reconnect, rewild
In partnership with renowned wilderness guides from Wild Human, our Rewilding Weekends equip and enable you and your family to rewild yourselves by learning to unlock the power of nature.
To rewild is to revitalise your senses, rediscover awe, live in harmony with nature and embrace personal growth. Rewilded people feel more, do more and care more. The planet needs more rewilded people!
From fire-building to foraging, camp crafting to star reading, get ready to swap digital screens for wild skills that lighten your footprints and deepen your relationships with nature and each other.
All profits will go back into the Livebarefoot Foundation, to support rewilding experiences across the world.
We offered two rewilding experiences over the summer. Once we have new dates we will update them here so watch this space.
MEET THE REWILDERS

They will create an empowering environment for you to learn skills, expand your horizons and return from your time in the wild transformed.
Oak Howe is thirteen private acres of young woodland in Lake District National Park, halfway between Kendal and Windermere. Planted with native broadleaf trees from 2011 as a rewilding project, it is also home to beautiful mature oaks and a stretch of river providing an increasingly diverse wildlife habitat.
Sensible outdoor clothing is essential for all of our courses.
We recommend that you bring:
A waterproof and windproof Jacket
Wool jumper or fleece top
Several long and short-sleeved T-shirts.
Cargo/combat trousers are ideal; as they are strong, light and fast drying (do not bring denim jeans).
Sturdy hiking boots are a must, as some of the terrain is steep and rocky.
We also recommend that you bring a pair of old trainers for the evenings
