Welcome to you!

At Power of the Woods Camp Weekends families living with intensity, super-sensitivity and hyper-reactivity join the community, to build confidence, resilience and have fun in the forest! This will be a place where we can meet during the year to learn skills, play outdoors and connect in nature. 
You and your children will be spending time together in nature learning woodcraft skills such as building fires, building dens, outdoor cooking, whittling and carving. You will also be able to take part in seasonal craft activities such as clay modelling (using clay dug from our site) and making a variety of creations from natural materials such as leaves, twigs and feathers. Together we will make a meal over the fire to share at lunchtime.

All families involved will be offered support by Simone de Hoogh as part of the project to provide strategies for managing everyday situations, to signpost you to further help, and to assess the impact of the Power of the Woods activities on your family. 

Activities

The first day of each weekend the organised activities will run from 10am-3.30pm (with lunch from 12-1pm). The second day organised activities will run from 10am-2pm (with lunch from 12-1pm). The early finish will allow those who are coming from farther afield to travel home.

Welcome to the Tribe

Join our community of families living with intensity, super-sensitivity and hyper-reactivity, to build confidence, resilience and have fun in the forest! This will be a place where we can meet during the year to learn skills, play outdoors and connect in nature.

Together we will make a meal over the fire to share at lunchtime.

During the day, there will be opportunities for parents to take part in other activities such as to get involved with our community farming project. However, you are very welcome to stay with your children and get involved in the activities they are engaged in. Often our children find it hard to be separated from us, especially in new environments, and it is important that they feel supported by you if they (and the whole family) are to make the most of this wonderful experience. As they become more comfortable they may be happy for you move away, but this is likely to be part of a gradual process that works best if they are allowed to take it at their own pace.
