Beyond the Wild

The real adventure,
beyond the travelling,
beyond the expeditions,
beyond the wild

is an encounter with the One
in whom we discover true life.


“By fusing together wilderness and spiritual survival Beyond the Wild equips young people so their faith can survive and thrive allowing them to become fully alive and fully who they were created to be as children of God.”

– Chris Stefanick, founder of Real Life Catholic


Nothing has had such a lasting impact on the boys of my parish; nothing has so dramatically transformed their vision of what it means to be a young Catholic man.”

– Fr Dylan James, parish priest and former chaplain to FOCUS

“Beyond the Wild teaches men to be men of God, by taking them out into the wild to encounter the true model of masculinity, Jesus, through prayer and the sacraments.”

– Jason Evert, founder of The Chastity Project

“There is nothing quite like Beyond the Wild in any other programme for young people, that I have seen. I pray that many young men and women will be inspired and enthused through their experiences with Beyond the Wild so that they, too, will be confident witnesses of Jesus Christ.”

– Bishop Mark O’Toole, Patron of Beyond the Wild

Becoming fully alive and fully who we were created to be as children of God.

Beyond the Wild is a Catholic charity which addresses and seeks to reverse the current trend of young people losing their Catholic faith throughout their teenage years by fusing together wilderness and spiritual survival.

Since 2012 we’ve been offering unique wild camping retreats, events, and resources teaching people how to survive in the wild and how the fire of their faith can survive and thrive in our world. Hundreds of young people have already experienced Beyond the Wild’s wilderness retreats with our talks, retreat days, and workshops in schools, parishes, and dioceses reaching thousands more.
