Here’s looking forward to a wonderful woodland adventure!
“A walk in the woods has been a different experience for Rosie since W.I.L.D. Every aspect of the woods now stimulates her imagination. Rosie now talks about sticks as being tools, she pretends that trees are aeroplanes and trains and is definitely more adventurous. She shows more interest in all aspects of nature and would be able to 'outsurvive' her parents in the wilderness without a doubt!”
“W.I.L.D offers children much needed time to simply enjoy nature while interacting with peers and not screens.”
“Brilliant outdoor fun! My daughter enjoyed every minute. Would heartily recommend.”
