Dave Beare


I'm based in North Essex and have over 20 years experience mountain biking, hill walking and wild camping. I semi-retired early in 2019, started training as a Hill and Moorland Leader and qualified in the autumn of 2021.

A lunchtime conversation during one of the many training courses I attended lead to a recommendation and eventual meeting with Emma Holland. We quickly clicked, and discovered a shared love for the hills, wild camping, and a desire to share with others how those experiences can benefit mental wellbeing. We discussed ideas, agreed to work in partnership and the first Camp 404 wild camping expeditions were run in the summer of 2021.
