Circle of Life Rediscovery

The Wilderness Foundation UK is pleased to bring you news from our friend Marina Robb at Circle of Courage, who has the following opportunities for young people this Summer:

The John Muir Award is being offered at three camps this year run by Circle of Life Rediscovery, an East Sussex Centre. This award is a nationally recognised conservation award set up in honour of John Muir, the ‘founding father’ of the world conservation movement.
All camps encourage you to enjoy the outdoors, get to know more about nature and wild places, explore creativity in new ways, learn wilderness and life skills and
provide a journey of self-discovery!

Circle of Life Rediscovery draws on a team of professional facilitators (CRB checked) who are wilderness experts, carry a deep experience and respect of nature and other cultures, and who know how to have fun!

This year you can join us at:
