Powering the Adventure Revolution

Explorers Connect 10th Birthday Party
Friday 21st - Sunday 23rd June 2019

A party in the woods to celebrate 10 years of adventure. Talks, workshops, woodland silent disco, the friendliest likeminded crowd & LOTS of new adventures to try. Like a micro version of Base Camp Festival but even more intimate, only 100 tickets available

OVERVIEW

Gather 100 likeminded people in a woodland, add bucket loads of adventure activities, speakers, experts and surprises for the party of the year!

In 2009 Belinda set out with the mission to make adventure more accessible. After 15yrs of taking people into the wilderness she had seen the positive effect of outdoor adventure on everyone. Explorers Connect was born, a not-for-profit community built to change the world by connecting and assisting would-be adventurers. Ten years and thousands of adventures later its time to celebrate its impact on bringing fun, challenge, wellbeing and shared-adventure to its community. Join us to celebrate 10 years of the Adventure Revolution

A weekend in our own woodland playground just outside Bristol. Spend the day trying new experiences and adventures with new and old friends. We are keeping some of the activities a surprise but if you want a hint….. they will include opportunities to climb trees, shoot air rifles, meet wildlife, learn bushcraft skills, ‘fly’, balance, explore, discover, walk and build something unique. And yes the Base Camp Festival mega tower of jenga will be returning too as part of the woodland playground of see saws, swings, campfires etc

The theme of the party is ‘Around the World’

  • Hear tales of adventures from teams assisted by Explorers Connect over the last decade

  • Join workshops designed to help you get around the world or at least a little further incl ‘Budget travel’, ‘Visas, bribes & borders’, ‘Using tech when travelling’

In the evening dance at the silent disco on a platform high in the trees, share stories around one of the three campfires and delight in more surprises….

EC adventures are informal, friendly and great fun! They're made up of singles, couples and small sets of friends with ages typically ranging from mid 20s to mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome. Whether it's your first time exploring the outdoors or you're an adventure professional, EC adventures are a great way to meet like-minded people in a safe, welcoming and fun environment.
