Family Woodland Experiences
Children who don’t spend time outside run the risk of serious health issues, such as obesity (CDC,2008), myopia (Reuters, 2009), and vitamin D deficiency (AAP, 2009). The good news is that outdoor activities kids love, like running, jumping, climbing, playing games with friends, and taking nature walks are a great strategy for keeping children healthy.

We at Wild Wood Activities are passionate about getting children outdoors. We have Wild Wood-lander and Forest Explorer events, holiday activities and family sessions to get young and old out and about.
Imagine exploring the woods with your family, chatting around the campfire, making and crafting together?
So many families find it difficult to do this in their day to day lives, which is why these experiences are so magical. Lauren has noticed the impact that spending time in the woods has had in families over the years, time which is not just getting from A to B or walking the dog. Meaningful, mindful time to reconnect and share with those you care about and have fun at the same time!
Take home shared memories which can last a lifetime. Our family experiences are usually day sessions although we do have occasional overnight opportunities and can even tailor something to your family depending on numbers.
Lauren, I wanted to say what a great week the boys had at the Ecclesall woods summer camp. They loved every day and Daniel has asked if they can come again next summer.It's been a great experience for them both and please pass on my thanks to all the staff. They have learnt lots and had fun too. Thanks again from me too as happy kids means a happy mum.Sarah Craig, Parent
At first I felt a bit nervous because dad wasn’t there and then when it got started I got excited. I enjoy making dens and whittling.Cameron (Aged 8) Forest Explorer Saturday Club

Please book Luca in for the summer session…. He loved it and had a great time this week. Thanks for having him! Best wishes.Jenny (Mum of Forest Explorer)
Both my boys loved their day with you, thank you! They particularly enjoyed making knives, making dens and going out into the woods. I was not expecting such a positive outcome!H. Gilder, Parent of Forest Explorers
Just wanted to say thanks again for a brilliant party this morning. Nathaniel and all of his friends (and their parents!) had a great time. It was all we had hoped for and more! Will definitely be recommending you, and we may even be back again another year!!A.Sorrill, parent
Hi Lauren, you asked for the children's views of Saturday Club, here's Joseph's! "Saturday Club is EPIC, I love running round in the woods with my new friends making fires, building dens and playing awesome games. I can't think of a better club to go to."J Coultas (Saturday and Holiday Club Attendee!)
