When you arrive

We play and explore, craft, build, prepare healthy food to cook on the fire. Learn to light fires, use tools to create all sorts of creative treasures of your own design. Make a den and eat lunch in it if that appeals, relax in the hammock, cut wood from the forest to work on with knives. enjoy popcorn or marshmallows that you have cooked over the fire. Our groups of children work on mutual respect for each other and the environment. The sessions are lead by the children and supported by the leaders who provide resources, knowledge, expertise and a sense of humour. Prompts and ideas will be freely given to anyone short on ideas.

WILDPLAY at Herefordshire Wildlife Trust·Allowing our children time and freedom
Our WildPlay Rangers feel passionately that children need the opportunity for joyful and playful experiences outdoors. Chances to manage and take their own risks, build their confidence and make judgements independently. These early connections with nature supports all areas of development as well as health and wellbeing, embedding skills they will use for the rest of their lives. Play is fundamental to a child’s emotional, physical and cognitive development. Allowing our children time and freedom to play in nature, nurtures them into becoming adults who love and care for the natural world around them. Children’s opportunities to play and explore in nature have been reduced through a variety of physical and social factors, which include poor access to spaces for outdoor play as well as parents and carers concerns for their children’s safety . Compared to their grandparents generation children are 62% less like to play outside with much of their free time spent interacting on digital platforms or in organised clubs. JOIN IN!
