About

Our after school and Saturday morning clubs are targeted at children with an adventurous spirit in need of a place to let off steam after a busy day or week of indoor instruction. We provide traditional outdoor experiences from making bows and arrows to taking care of insects and plants. We provide practical skills such as how to cook on a campfire and build a natural shelter. Like all of our programmes these sessions have a strong influence on the development of emotional intelligence, self-esteem, and social skills. Our sessions are inspired by the natural world and it's cycles, cultural celebrations and stories. This helps children to develop a strong sense of their place in the world. We work to encourage the next generation of caretakers for our planet to emerge through personal experience of the wonder of nature. ​ Children attending this programme will be: - Ready to spend time away from their primary care-givers. - Able to respect the boundaries that are necessary to ensuring safety in the outdoors. - Physically able to play outdoors for the duration of the session in the tropical environment. ​ Parents are invited to contribute their own skills and cultural knowledge to enrich our sessions as part of our Wildlings Community. ​ Please view our Safety Policy for how we work to manage and mitigate the hazards that children may be exposed to whilst attending our tropical outdoor programmes. - Duration: 1hr 45m-2hrs - Group size: up to 34 children (Dempsey) - Ratio: 1:6 - 3.5-5yrs, 1:7 - 6-7yrs, 1:8 - 8-10yrs.
