Inspiring a lifetime of adventure
We believe that every adventure we offer to children should do more than fill a few hours: it should involve and inspire them. Inspiration can take many forms: from discovering the first thrill of adventure to uncovering a talent they never knew they had, so we’re just as happy seeing a child build a camp in the woods as watching them run down a zipwire. In fact, we’re inspired by seeing children recognise these key moments of personal development outside the classroom.
Parents ourselves, we have an innate love of outdoor adventure and care deeply about our children’s wellbeing. We know all about drawing the line between adventure and safety, state of the art screen-based education and simpler, more rugged experiences. We apply all we’ve learned from life to the Wildchild experience.
We have been working with schools and delivering enrichment programmes and outdoor adventures for over 8 years. Everything we do is honed by constant, close consultation with teachers and we have the experience and know-how to tailor each experience to your needs, expectations and desired outcomes.
Our team all share the Wildchild ethos. As well as being superbly trained and professional, we select them for their passion, dedication and commitment to making each child’s experience memorable and inspiring.
A Wildchild adventure trip for schools gives children the opportunity to develop new skills and enjoy outdoor thrills. But it does far more than that. Above and beyond the fun and games, they discover more about themselves and we see positive changes in areas such as:
We do everything we can to deliver value for money so the far-reaching benefits of outdoor adventure are accessible to as many children as possible. By offering bespoke programmes with a range of activities throughout the year we can fit in with your budget and remember: we have no minimum stay for residential visits.
"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!"
