Frequently Asked Questions
How do we get to you and is there parking?
We are located in Dempsey at 27A Loewen Road.
There is a drop-off space large enough for a full-szied school bus at the entance to the main car park. Vehicles can park in nearby car parks in the Dempsey area.
Do you have risk assessments?
Yes. We have a full range of risk assessments we can provide to you on request.
Are you first aid trained?
Yes. You will have at least one first aid trained member of staff from Wildlings.
Have you completed child safeguarding training?
Yes. All of our staff have completed Child Safe Guarding training provided by https://childsafeguarding.com. We implement our Child Safeguarding Policy and work proactively to ensure children are safe from harm and abuse when visiting Wildlings. We are recognised as a child-safe organisation.
What do we do if there is adverse weather?
We have plenty of shelter and shade onsite and go ahead in normal wet conditions.
If we have adverse weather we have a few options for you, depending on the size of your group. We will devise a plan together.
How many activities can we have?
You may choose up to three, in addition to what already exists at Wildlings to engage children with nature and the outdoors.
The duration and number of activities will determine the price of your excursion. Please enquire.
Are there bathrooms?
Yes. At Core Collective there are bathrooms. These are a convenient 50m walk from our gate and part of the same complex.
Please note that there are two female, two male, and one disabled toilet at Core Collective so we strongly recommend bathroom trips take place at School before departure to avoid a late start to your session.
Are there changing facilities?
We have tents that children can change in at Wildlings. Alternatively, there are male and female changing rooms at Core Collective.
What shall we wear?
Our recommendation is old cloths suitable for the outdoors which parents don't mind getting mucky and wet. Children can change into their P..E. kit afterwards before the journey home. Clothes should be loose and easy to change, and cover the skin where possible to minimise insect bites and exposure to the sun.
It's likely footwear will get wet and muddy so a change of shoes is essential. For campfire activities shoes must be closed toe and children must have hair tied back and no loose dangling items attached to them.
What shall each child bring?
A water bottle (we provide drinking water to top-up), small towel and change of clothes and shoes. Mosquito repellant should be applied before your visit. We have plenty of shade to hats are as per your school policy.
What about snacks?
Please bring snacks with you. We can incorporate a snack time into the programme. If you would like full catering please contact us.
