"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. It was a fantastic outdoor experience for our children, many of whom had never spent a night away from home. An exciting, fun-filled adventure led by a team who we really felt wanted us to get the most out of the experience!"

"It was the wholesome, outdoorsy experience these kids desperately need while growing up in London."
