Join us this May half-term!

An Adventurous outdoor club for 8-11 year olds in Wandsworth!

Tuesday 29th May to Friday 1st June

Come and join us this May half-term for our adventurous outdoor club held on our community gar-den 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.
