February half-term Wild Child

Join us this February half-term!

An Adventurous outdoor club for 8-12 year olds in Wandsworth!

Monday 12th February to Friday 16th February

Come and join us this February half-term for our adventurous outdoor club held on our community garden site just next to Wandsworth Common.

Throughout the week we’ll be following our usual daily rhythms of play that include: energetic games, reflection and story-telling, and adventurous activities using nature. We find that a mix of these throughout the day lead to a variety of fun, challenge and confidence-building for children.

Children are welcome to come for a mix of days, or all week as each day works as a standalone stepping stone. We recommend booking early as our clubs are popular and book up fast.

As well as the locations below, each extended day finishes at Home Community Cafe on Garret Lane for a snack, hot drink and games in the warm!
