The YesTribe Story

In the Summer of 2015 Dave decided to try and turn his Facebook audience into real people. A first invite to go camping for a night was met by 19 people. The next week twenty five. And on and on throughout the Summer right up until the most wonderful conclusion, Yestival.

Something wonderful had happened. This growing group of strangers had become friends and suddenly  people were growing in confidence, supported and encouraged by city-livers who realised the importance in the great outdoors. 

Adventures were taken on, jobs that made Mondays sad were quit, new paths forged and friendships blossomed. 2015 was the Summer the YesTribe was formed and it's not going anywhere fast.

Tune in to the YesTribe page on Facebook to find out about our next events, campouts, projects, retreats and adventures. And of course, to hear more about Yestival 2016.

14 AUGUST: CASTLE CAMP OUT

A one-night campout with good people to celebrate the end of a week, with fish n chips and a castle thrown in for good measure. It's the beginning of a weekend, so no better time to hatch multiple life-changing plans.

7 AUGUST: SURREY FUN

A one-night, end of week wild camp micro adventure for YesTribers. We discovered a new (and gorgeous spot), woke in a cloud and slowly the sun melted the mist out of the valley below. Great views, fresh air, another 20 Tribers added to the list, then back into London by 10am for the weekend!


31ST JULY: CELEBRATING THE BLUE MOON

A little night in some woods not too far from London. Our record turnout of 34 people, over half of them new to the #SummerSeries. The tribe is growing, spirits are high, plans are forming. 


21 JULY: A WALK IN THE WOODS

A one-night, midweek wild camp micro adventure. From Waterloo to a Surrey train station, then a ten minute walk into the woods. Gorgeous! 



17-19 JULY: SUP THe upper thames

Another team of 12 humans totally new to paddle boarding. Two nights and two days on England's biggest river, weaving our way downstream towards Oxford. Perfect.


3-5 JULY: SUP cornwall

Along with the founders of Origin Paddleboards and adventure Ian Pricket's Vertical Blue SUP company, we hosted a delightful (and slightly windy) weekend of coastal and river paddle boarding, overnighting in a couple of lovely campsites just a few metres from the water. 

Here's a lovely blog by Terri Witherden about an old love for Cornwall and a new love for SUP!


26-27 JUNE: LEA VALLEY

Another Friday night campout, with some of the group taking a short train from Liverpool St and another cycling from London. We met in the deliciously pretty Lea Valley and found ourself a field full of long grass to hide in. Eventually we broke cover with a session of painting in the darkness by torchlight, brilliant!
