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!
Wildchild Residential Adventure trips provide a real opportunity for children through to young adults to experience the natural world outside. We deliver immersive outdoor education experiences in exciting woodland environments, with a key focus on engaging young people, helping them to identify and appreciate the many benefits and wonders of the natural world.
Our varied outdoor adventure programmes ensure 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.
Take a look at our Adventure Planner for more information on our all-inclusive residential trip programmes.
Our outdoor adventure centres are chosen for their spacious and natural woodland setting, convenient and easily accessible location, and flexible accommodation options. Whether you opt for the under-canvas camping experience with our bell-tented village (available in both locations May-Oct), cosy dormitory style lodges in rural Hertfordshire, or the unique experience of our glamping pods in leafy Cobham, Surrey, you’re guaranteed a great night’s sleep in a fabulous location!
With one-night adventures starting at £99 per person, a Wildchild Adventure provides a quality, value for money option for schools and groups looking for a real outdoor learning opportunity for their pupils within easy access, and without the added time and cost of a long journey. The cost of your trip includes meals, accommodation, activities, evening activity programme, Wildchild instructors with you for the duration of your trip, and free teacher /leader places.
