About the event
As June rolls around we continue to follow in our role models footsteps. This month we're following the path of Steven Brondel.
Steve was the founder & original Chief Instructor of Wilderness Adventures, custodian of Fox Covert before us and a man who was willing to take a gamble on a bloke with a pipe dream. In all honesty, Steve did an incredible amount to help get Fara Kanna off the ground & we're forever endebted to him & his family. Steve would often spend many a night among the trees at Fox Covert & this evening we're doing the same.
Enjoy a peacful Saturday night in our beautful woodland in full bloom. We'll meet early evening close to the end of Spring where we will head into the trees & establish camp for the night. Take advantage of a relaxed pace while we cook our evening meal over an open fire as dusk threatens to raise its head. After dinner we'll look at a few knife skills before winding down for the evening when we'll watch the sun set before retiring for a night under the stars.
Where and how you sleep is up to you...
Whether in a tent, basha, hammock, lavvu, under a tarp or even a debris shelter if you're brave the choice is yours as is your pitch location. We have access to the whole property including the field to the North & our conservation area to the East.
Following a restful night surrounded by lush greenery & local wildlife we'll rise with the sun & cook breakfast, you'll leave with a full stomach, a clear mind, close bonds and an experience you won't soon forget.
