What We Do

Growing Wild provides exciting outdoor learning opportunities for children and young people using the natural environment. We can deliver tailored Forest School sessions for schools, communities and young people’s organisations in Cornwall.

Education

Growing Wild Cornwall aims to ensure that all children really benefit from their time with us learning in nature. We generally run 6-10 week programmes, depending on the school or young people’s needs. These programmes can be targeted to any age group to develop self-confidence, nature awareness, communication and teamwork.  Activities can include: den building, bug safaris, fire lighting, campfire cooking, whittling, tool use, survival skills and story-telling.

We can provide:

  • 6-10 week programmes tailored to suit individual/group needs
  • Activity days for small groups and whole classes
  • After school activities
  • Targeted confidence building sessions
  • Taster sessions for all schools

We have recently run programmes with students from Robartes Ace Academy (Bodmin), St Breock School (Wadebridge) and Lanivet Primary School.

Young People’s Organisations

Growing Wild Cornwall can offer a range of services to young people’s organisations, from one off events, to regular sessions for groups or individuals. We look forward to working with local youth groups, scouting and guiding organisations. Growing Wild Cornwall can offer taster sessions or develop longer programmes tailored to suit the individual group’s needs. 

Community

Growing Wild Cornwall really wants to be able to provide opportunities to local children and their families. Particularly supporting those who don’t often get out and enjoy the outdoors. We have held very successful taster day for children and their families in Wadebridge and hope to run many more in the future, giving young people from Cornwall the opportunity to learn about, explore and enjoy nature.

Targeted Support

Growing Wild Cornwall has experience of working with children with additional support needs. We can develop learning packages to support individual children’s needs.
