Rekindle your wild

Timeless strategies for building a better you! 

You hear it. You feel it. It's the curiosity it's the desire to get out! It's the call of the wild taking hold~

It can be a radical move to go camping. It can be radical to say "I'm going to press pause and take time out for me".  It can also be radical to feel calm and enjoyment in the natural world. 

Imagine this ~ you're sitting by a beautiful fire you made without the use of matches or a lighter. You're holding a warm cup of tea or glass of wine smiling and enjoying the company surrounding you. Earlier you unpacked and settled into your private accommodations; a canvas tent with a bed, clean linens, and other amenities. This day has proven to be ordinary and yet extraordinary. You created fire, learned how to be found if you're lost in the woods, discovered how to make cutting edge! And on top of all that you experienced meditation and yoga practices to center and stabilize you feeling calm and gently focused. It's a good day!

This is a daily experience at the Rule of Five Nature Retreats. We blend wilderness skills and wellness skills within a modern camp setting. These retreats support confidence in the natural world as well as within daily life. The goal: Refresh the body and the heart.

Why attend Rekindle your Wild?

  • Gain confidence in the natural world
  • Get centered and stabilized
  • Feel restored
  • Learn life balancing strategies and techniques & badass empowerment
  • Open up moments of creativity and inspiration

This is a Ro5 all-inclusive adventure with lodging, group-prepared meals, all training supplies, the Rekindle your Wild custom kit, and more.

ALL-INCLUSIVE AMENITIES

Wilderness Adventure Travel accommodations and meals

An ultimate New Mexico camping experience

Our all-inclusive rate structure ensures visits to the Rule of Five are a memorable and unique experience combining comfortable safari-style wilderness camping, group-prepared meals and a unique atmosphere.

Often other outdoor survival organizations do not consider contemporary comforts as an important aspect for a learning atmosphere. We strongly believe in a learning environment that supports inquiry, fun and first hand experience. Our goal is to ensure our guests experience high quality comfort paired with rustic simplicity to support an experience that allows for learning and adventure.

The all-inclusiveness Rule of Five provides is a cornerstone in the guest experience. We are pleased to offer group-prepared meals, comfortable accommodations, experienced staff and expert instructors all steeped in the idea that the Rule of Five Base will become the center of an unforgettable experience for the length of your stay.

Literally, all you need are your clothes, a sleeping bag, personal items, a positive attitude, and an adventurous spirit.

We take care of everything once you arrive at Ro5.  Please be aware participants must supply their own transportation to the Ro5 Wilderness Company and lodging before and after the experience.
