About this Event

Set up camp for a day of wildness in the woods at TCV Skelton Grange...

Activities will vary from session to session - but past Wild Playdays have included:

Wide games, shelter building, fire lighting, campfire cooking, field games, hammock making, wild food walks, woodwork crafts, string making, bows and arrows, stalking and tracking, pyro-carving, and charcoal making.

The cost per child is £30 (+ VAT and Eventbrite booking fee) and includes a day of outdoor games and bushcraft activities led by experienced leaders.

Sessions run from 10am - 4pm.

Please bring a packed lunch for the day.

"The kids really enjoy their days - it is great for them to have a whole day outdoors learning new skills."

"It is a wonderful opportunity to try new activities in a supportive and stimulating environment. 'J' found the adults inspiring, and can't wait to come back!"

If you have any questions, contact the Skelton Grange Team on 0113 2430815 or [email protected]. 

If the date you want to book onto is 'SOLD OUT' then please contact us - if there are enough requests we will endeavour to arrange another session during the same holiday period.
