Boys Rites of Passage
Rites and symbols of initiation are intended to open the life of each person to the sense of meaning and purpose already dwelling in them as their god given, spirit blessed, passion led soul tried to awaken. Michael Meade.

“Handing back the birth-right of initiation to our children”

"If you don't initiate the boy, he will burn down the village just to keep warm" 
Massai Tribe

A 5 day (4 night) camp for boys aged 13- 17 years in an ancient Sussex forest.

A personal journey of adventure, discovery and self-awareness, using deep nature connection and bush craft skills.

Fostering a healthy transition on the journey to being an adult man.

Our qualified and experienced staff team of young and older men have worked extensively within the field of initiation and wilderness programmes. Using mentoring relationships, team building and leadership development you will be inspired, build self-respect and confidence. By the end of the camp you will have a renewed sense of purpose – who you are, and what you uniquely bring into the world, your families and communities.

Skills learnt on the camp include: Fire by friction; Shelter building; tracking; foraging and game preparation; archery; cordage; nature awareness and knife work

Parents and carers – You are invited to attend a short session at the start and end of the camp so both you and your son can get the best out of their time with us.
