Mentored by Chris PackeMentor summary: Wild guide
For ages: 11 - 13 years
**NOW OPEN FOR 2023 BOOKINGS!** The Call to Adventure is an outdoor mentoring programme for a tribe of 11-13 year old boys. It comprises 3 episodes between May and October: an energetic springtime camp in the woods, a 3 day summer hiking expedition, and then welcoming in the darker autumn months back in the woods. This is placed to meet boys in Year 7 and Year 8, at that stage for a thirst for adventure and a taste for independence really starts to arise. The Call to Adventure is a classic mythological concept. The young protagonist reaches a point where something adventurous has been activated. He feels the need to travel away from the civilised village and the close protection it provides, into the wild lands and the unexpected challenges that they offer. Crazy antics ensue. A mentor is there to give the helping hand they need, in the moment and in the way that they best need it.

• No refunds are given except in the case of a cancellation by the Mentor.
• This programme demands a high level of commitment from the organisers, and therefore a reciprocal level of commitment from families sending their son to join. We form a tribe and journey through the 3 experiences as a cohesive group. Absences or mid-programme cancellations are highly disruptive to the group, due to the strong bonds formed. Before the programme starts: Once a booking is made, it means that other inquirers may need to be turned away. If a person has booked, changes their mind and wants to cancel before the programme starts, they will get a refund less £200 if the cancellation is before 31 January (this is reduced to £100 if the place is filled by someone else). After 31 January, no refund can be given, unless the place is filled, in which case a refund less £100 is given. After the programme starts: No new participants are able to join, and so there can be no refunds, apart from at the Mentor's discretion. In order to facilitate the commitment from the participant , I will meet / speak / Skype with parents and son, to ensure that the time is indeed right, and the intention strong and clear, to participate in this programme. After booking, I will send you additional documents including terms of participation (various acknowledgements and understandings around how we will operate), along with brief questionnaires around health and intention. Detailed event information will be circulated in good time ahead of each event.
