Wild Camp

Re-connecting creative minds with nature.

Wild Camp was hatched to find ways to catalyse nature re-connection for leaders from creative business and commercial backgrounds.

Wild Camp is a collaboration between Swarm, Mark Sears and Al Kennedy who between them have over 75 years experience in brand and business innovation, creative business development, social innovation start-ups and sustainable business, working with global leadership teams, creative teams, entrepreneurs and graduates.

The core team are also trained leaders in outdoor environmental education from WildWise/Schumacher College in Devon.


Wild Camps are immersive experiences for anyone looking to recalibrate their digital and natural lives and re-ignite their creativity. We work with nature and wildness to develop open-ness, awareness, creativity and collaboration skills and building our inner capacity to do difficult and challenging work in the world.
