Inspiring a lifetime of adventure
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
Our outdoor adventure school residential trips give primary school pupils an immersive introduction to outdoor learning.
Challenging activities build resilience, independence and develop practical life skills that complement classroom learning.
Whatever the weather, time spent outdoors offers a unique opportunity for learning to be embedded back in the classroom
Don't just take our word for it. Read what just some of our schools had to say following their recent Wildchild Adventures.
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
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.
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.
“All the instructors we had were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Loved them! They’ve made our experience fab”. Manor Farm Primary School
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:
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.
"Our children thoroughly enjoyed the variety of activities, which were run by fun-loving team members, who ensured all children were encouraged and safe. We, as a school, would recommend a visit by any school – we were so impressed we have booked again."
De Havilland Primary School
"Our Year 3 pupils enjoyed a wonderful residential trip, thanks to Wildchild’s dedicated staff running great activities.

An exciting, fun-filled adventure led by a team who we really felt wanted us to get the most out of the experience!"
