    Life is an adventure, so let’s show children how to make adventure a way of life!

    About Us

    About School Trip Organisers Wildchild Adventure

    At Wildchild, we believe that children can uncover hidden skills and talents by connecting with the Great Outdoors. This can spill over into every area of their life, boosting self-esteem and motivating them to explore their potential for living life to the full.

    As school trip organisers 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.

    “Wildchild’s ethos matches our own – teamwork, challenge and encouragement to face difficulties”. Westfield Primary School

    We have strong Wildchild Values

    We are child centred. Everything we do is rooted in the belief that each child deserves to shine. We want children to have an adventure of their lifetime whilst on a Wildchild trip.

    We want each child to leave with a real sense of achievement, an increased sense of confidence, and feeling braver and more resilient than when they arrived.

    Children only get one childhood, and it’s more than OK to spend that time getting muddy, having fun, playing and having freedom to explore.

    We are passionate and enthusiastic about the great outdoors. We care about nature, about the environment, about the world around us. We believe in looking after our planet and encouraging others to do the same. Nature is cool!

    As a family run company, we care deeply about our customers’ experiences. We invest in excellent quality equipment, we employ the best staff, we reward and value their contribution, and pride ourselves on excellent customer service – we want every school relationship to last for years.

    We want our experiences to be available to as many children at possible, so we price our trips fairly. We offer customised trips to meet the needs of all budgets

    Our background

    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.

    “It was the wholesome, outdoorsy experience these kids desperately need while growing up in London”. Hugh Myddleton Primary School

    Our experience

    We have been working with schools and delivering enrichment programmes and outdoor adventures for over 12 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.

    “Provided the children with the independence we needed.  It also created an experience they will never forget”.  Loose Primary School, Year 6

    Our team

    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.  We’re very proud of the positive feedback and testimonials we receive from schools returning year and year, crediting the personalised service and dedication of our staff.

    “In my 8 years of residentials, the staff were the friendliest and most accommodating to both students and teachers alike”.  St Mary Magdalen, Year 6

    “Your staff are incredible and made a real difference to the experience”.  Simon Balle, Year 5


    A Wildchild residential 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:

    • Relationship building
    • Taking personal responsibility and developing leadership skills
    • Building confidence and using this to learn new skills and explore new terrain
    • Working as a team
    • Discovering new talents
    • Building a sense of achievement through reaching set goals and overcoming obstacles
    • Connecting with the outdoors
    • Finding new sources of creativity, enjoyment and excitement

    Value for money

    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.
