Let’s go on an adventure.
Let’s meet a tree, whisper to its leaves, hear the snap and crackle of fire, carve curls of fresh wood and feel the rough rock on our fingertips.
Let’s return home, faces tingling from the fresh air, hair smelling of wood smoke and smiles from our day of adventure.
Fox and Squirrel aims to approach outdoor education in low impact ways, giving thanks to the wild spaces that still remain, as well as providing experiences that are accessible to everyone.
Whether we’re on the moors of Dartmoor, exploring an untamed woodland, abseiling cliffs on the Jurassic Coast or simply cooking over a fire in the allotments down the road, it’s about getting outdoors and appreciating the nature that is all around us.
Having grown up in rural Cumbria, Chloe has a wealth of life experience in living outdoors and alongside nature. She has a passion for treading lightly wherever she goes, and in appreciating the natural world around her.
Now based in Worthing, West Sussex, she has provided workshops for Kew Gardens, Food Pioneers CIC, Breathing Spaces, and Schools Without Walls. Including wood whittling for all ages, outdoor cooking, natural tie dying, slacklining, firelighting and natural paint making.
As part of the Mountain Training Association, Chloe has logged over 200 climbs outdoors covering a variety of rock formation as well as climbing styles. From bouldering on Koh Tao, Thailand, to multi pitch climbing in the Lakeland Fells.
She has instructed beginners in their first experiences of outdoor rock climbing at areas including Harrison’s Rocks – High Weald, The Dewerstone and Sheeps Tor – Dartmoor, Shepherds Crag – Lake District, Symonds Yat – Herefordshire and the Idwal Slabs – Snowdonia.
