Inspiring a lifetime of adventure
What makes Wildchild unique above other residential providers is that we don’t just offer days of back-to-back activities taking children from one harness to another!
Our combination of teambuilding, bushcraft and survival skills and outdoor adventure activities means achievement on a Wildchild Adventure is about much more than simply who climbed highest and who reached furthest. We recognise and celebrate teamwork, resilience, the willingness to try new things and perseverance in overcoming personal challenges.
By offering such a wide range of activities we ensure all children have the opportunity to find their connection with the great outdoors and embark on a path of self-discovery.
Key Stage 1 activities for Outdoor Adventure days include..
Key Stage 2 and 3 Activities for Residential Trips and Outdoor Adventure Days include..
And when the sun goes down…
The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down! Our fun evening activity programme could include wide games, ambush, cresta run toboggans, making friendship bracelets around the campfire, or even a night-time safari on a bat detection mission!
Our experienced team of instructors work hard to deliver daytime and evening activities to enthuse and inspire, ensuring children enjoy a well-earned sleep after every busy but thoroughly enjoyable and immersive day of outdoor adventure.
"Thank you so much for a phenomenal trip – we couldn’t have asked for anything more. All children and staff have not stopped sharing stories about our experience. We’re definitely coming back next year!"
"We had a brilliant three days – a real highlight of the year for children and adults! One teacher summed it up as “the highlight of my career”. The children loved it and are already excited about the next trip"
"Just wanted to thank all the Wildchild team. We had such a great time! Everyone loved it. You have a great team. Everyone is so passionate and our kids felt at home, safe and looked after. They told me on the bus they did not even miss their parents. When you are having fun, time flies!"
"I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you for all the hard work you put in for us this weekend! We had such a good time and the children have been buzzing about it today, despite being very very tired!"
"A fantastic fun packed day with a lovely group of very enthusiastic instructors. Thank you to your team for making our outdoor adventure day such a positive experience."
"When we chose Wildchild to deliver our Year 7 transition residential the idea was for our new pupils to get to know each other, learn to work together and the importance of our natural environment. The trip did all of that and so much more – since returning to school we’ve noticed a real bond among pupils and teachers alike, and a big improvement in communication and teamwork. It was a fantastic experience and we look forward to doing it all again next year!"
