#GetWild  

Our #GetWild sessions take eight-15 year-olds on outdoor adventures. Kids can leave their parents at home and go wild outdoors building dens, climbing trees and cooking over the campfire. A great chance for kiddos to make friends and connect with nature. 

• Where and when? #GetWild takes place in the school holidays at locations including The Wolseley Centre in Wolseley Bridge, Westport Lake Visitor Centre in Stoke-on-Trent, nature reserves, South West Peak and at parks and green spaces around the county - check out What's On for your nearest session and to find out more.
