Event description
Enjoy a different kind of Friday night out!
Spend the longest summer's day, the summer solstice, outside, under canvas, nestled away in a cosy woodland near the Lammermuir Hills, and enjoy some hiking and a loch swim the following day!
Setting up camp in the beautiful woodlands near Haddington, we will spend some time wandering and wondering, making the most of the daylight we will get all summer, watch nature in bloom, wake up to the dawn chorus, and simply enjoy being outside, away from the week's stresses, pressures and expectation, taking time to re-balance, ground and find our centre.

Imagine skies full of stars, with a tent of your very own as well as a personalised packlist (provided for you)

No previous camping/yoga/meditation experience required.

You will leave feeling refreshed, invigorated, inspired and happy to be alive, smelling of fire and freedom!
