Loving Men Summer Camp - Wild at Heart


3 nights in the wilds of Sussex for gay, bi & queer men
With Tom Cowan and Tim Foskett
05 - 08 July 2019
Balcombe, West Sussex

     

Come and explore your wild side this midsummer in 500 acres of beautiful countryside. Expect a fun time with campfires, fresh air, and outdoor activities in woods and fields.

This intimate workshop, with up to 30 men, will be led by Tim Foskett and Tom Cowan, who have many years experience facilitating events for gay/bi men.

Accommodation is camping in your own tent, or there’s a rustic bunkhouse with ten indoor beds. There are basic showers and loos (which are somewhere between shabby chic and just plain shabby). We have exclusive use of the site which is far away from other people and cars and part of the stunning Balcombe estate.

There’ll be a daily programme of activities including yoga, interactive exercises, and space to share. We’ll also play games, eat delicious food and sit (and sing!) round campfires.

We have a cook, Jacob, who will be making us delicious vegetarian food. See his website   Tiger Eats Carrot. Participants will be asked to help out at some point over the weekend with kitchen prep and/or dishwashing.

Arrival and Departure: the event will begin with dinner at 6 pm on Friday 05 July, and you are welcome to arrive anytime after 3:00 pm to set up your tent and help get the place ready. We will depart after lunch by 2:30 pm on Monday 08 July.

Why camp? Natural spaces enable us to reconnect with our most essential selves, to let the superficial drop away and find the deeper stream of what really matters.

They also provide us with a unique environment to connect, stretch your comfort zone and explore authentic relating with other men.

Come join in the fun this summer!
