Wild Child is an exciting club for children aged 8-11 run in partnership with Paradise Co-opertaive. Hosted on a beautiful community garden just next to Wandsworth Common, Wild Child encourages children to try new things, excite their imaginations and learn the way of nature. Through outdoor and creative activities we are hoping to help raise a generation that is aware of who they are, mindful of nature and has the capacity to imagine and think creatively.
Each session will have a different theme, and activities will include drama and story-telling; crafts; gardening skills; den-making; fire-lighting and bush-craft.
Over the duration of the sessions, children will grow in confidence, learn new skills and be encouraged to think creatively.
Sessions are led by our experienced leaders, who are DBS checked and First Aid trained. We have carried out Risk Assessments at our site, which is fenced-off at all sides and children are supervised at all times.
“I love Wild Child! I learnt that we can’t live without worms or bees. I learnt that I can do most things that I thought I couldn’t do, like hold a chicken!”
