‘It’s all about having respect for children’s capacity to investigate, test and maintain curiosity in the natural world around them.’

Wilderness School is an innovative educational approach to learning in the outdoors creating a exciting vehicle to encourage children’s creative use of their local open space for interactive play, health, recreation and personal development uses.

We believe in young people’s right to access the outdoors, risk and to experience a healthy range of emotions through the challenges of social
interaction and creative engagement with their peers.

Our instructors are expert educators, possessing academic qualifications for delivering skills based learning. They have the skills and experience to support and challenge young people, whether in the classroom or in the depths of a forest. Activities vary and include:

  • Natural play trails or rope trails.
  • Den building with natural resources.
  • Simple cooking and hot drinks with a healthy theme.
  • Woodcraft activities using simple hand tools and natural resources.
  • Games to promote environmental awareness.
