Festival Crowd Header

Following a sun-drenched and sold out Wildfire Adventure Camp this June, dates have now been set for the fourth edition in 2018. Next year’s event will move to Friday 31st August – Monday 3rd September.

From today (Tuesday 4th July)  ‘Veteran pre-sale’ tickets are now available in limited numbers at the special discounted price of £120 + booking fee only to those who sign up to the mailing list in time. Head to the website campwildfire.co.uk/tickets for more details. 

Organisers, Lee Denny and Julia Lowe commented on this year’s Wildfire:

“The Camp Wildfire Class Of '17 were definitely our most outrageous campers yet! We rafted, crafted, zorbed and partied in the blistering sunshine and communed round campfires under the stars! Competition for The Wildfire Cup reached a dangerously heated level, with the foxes winning by a whisker, and Willy Watkins was caught naked in the radio station after a few too many g&ts. In testament to the excellent camp team and the experience they delivered we have already sold 20% of our 2018 tickets over a year in advance! We can’t wait to see everyone again: onto the next great adventure fellow friends...”

This innovative weekend festival of immersive adventure and music, located in a Kentish heritage forest, is an ideal summer hideout where campers can try new activities, meet new friends, and rediscover that wonderful childlike sense of fun and curiosity.  Everyone at Wildfire Adventure Camp can participate in a whole programme of varied communal activities that test strength, creative thought, and challenge mental resources. 

The focus is on active days with over 80 pursuits on offer such as expeditions, bushcraft, artistry, and engineering and adventure sports.  All activities are included in the ticket price. Everyone joins a team, the most successful winning the coveted Wildfire Cup. Then, as darkness falls and the sun goes down, Wildfire is transformed into a hedonistic utopia of live music, crazy fun and unabashed revelry.


Top picks from this classic year included:  Extreme Hill Zorbing, Hammer Horror Mud Run, Archery Battles, Hemp Ice Cream Making, Astronomy, Ancient Sword Fighting and Wild Game Cooking.
