Camp Wildfire, adults only adventure and music festival, will come to secluded woodland near West Kingsdown, Kent

By Angela Cole

A weekend festival featuring everything from giant catapult building to bushcraft and hovercraft racing to live music into the night is coming to Kent.

Camp Wildfire - from Friday, August 31 to Monday, September 3 - promises to be a festival for adults to tackle their weekend goals in a half adventure camp, half music festival, in secluded woodland near West Kingsdown.

Styled on a 1950s Wes Anderson camp, its aim will be to give adults a weekend away from it all, immersed in a secret heritage pine forest, and comes from the same team behind Neverworld - formerly LeeFest - which is also being held in the county.

Challenging activities include hovercraft racing, freefall stunt jumping and building a giant catapult, with get down and dirty experiences such as a survival run and a 100ft extreme water slide in Adventure Valley.

Meditation classes designed to rejuvenate the body in a woodland setting, and the wilderness experience aims to let festivalgoers leave refreshed.

There will be arts and crafts, such as totem carving, and swing dancing and circus aerial skills, or the chance to get back to basics with bushcraft and fire lighting.

Camp Wildfire will feature a range of activities from freewill stunt jumping and giant-catapult building to hovercraft racing and yoga raves.
