Wolf Pack for Girls 2023
Adventurous programme for girls 13-15
For ages: 13 - 15 years
We are very excited in 2023 to bring Wolf Pack to a group of adventurous young women, led by Chris Packe and Elena Harris Wolf Pack is a year's journey for a tribe of girls becoming women, aged 13-15 years (academic Years 9 to 11). They take place during half terms and school holidays through the seasons, in beautiful environments in Sussex and Dartmoor. Risk, challenges and meaningful shared experience in the warm company of strong role models and fellow adventurers are vitally important for young people, to discover their huge capabilities, what they might stand for, and to develop a deep-seated self-reliance. Security is important, but in the teenage years its layers must be carefully removed in order for the young person to emerge. Yet the availability and encouragement of such experiences may often be limited, or crowded out by digital influences. Wolf Pack exists to facilitate deep encounters, learning through experiences in the natural world at the edge of comfort and ability...
2023 is the first year that Wolf Pack for Girls will run, but Chris has run Wolf Pack for Boys since 2017 (and Chris and Elena have led countless other events and programmes for young people). To give an idea, here are some testimonials from Wolf Pack for Boys. There's lots of feedback, so read as many or few as you wish!! "Wolf Pack meant I was getting to be friends with people I wouldn’t normally be friends with, seeing people differently and understanding everyone is interesting in their own way. I got to see parts of England that if I saw a photo of, I wouldn’t think was England. Coming away from the challenge of being away from society, social media and stress, I felt more relaxed, calm and concentrated." Louis, participant, 2021 "Wolf Pack doesn’t talk down to the kids, it packs a punch and offered exciting opportunities which inspired my son without question. No hand holding here or safety nets, in the eyes of my son this was the real deal. We witnessed a remarkable change...

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
• 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 5 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 £400 if the cancellation is before 31 January (this is reduced to £200 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 £200 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 daughter, 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.
