Wild and Safe Together

Having fun, being free, being safe together.

Our family sessions will continue to run this Summer, however we've had to make some changes to the way we work due to the physical restrictions we are currently experiencing.  If you know us, then you know how difficult we find restrictions of any kind, however we want you to know that we do this because we want to keep our elders and more vulnerable friends and family safe and well, so we are grateful for your help with this.

We are offering self led treasure trails in 5 different venues around Croydon over 5 weeks, which culminate in 'treasure' which consists of delicious goodies and an activity pack to enable a couple of lovely self led activities which are specific to the area in which you visit us.  We are trying to make activities that can then be looked at by all the other families afterwards. 

 

In some sites that allow fires, there will be a camp fire available for families to take turns to visit and cook a marshmallow.  As always, we will be on hand to come round and support you if you need us.

 

The 'treasure' will either be marshmallows and biscuits, and / or cake pops made by the Littlest Bakery.  You are welcome to bring your own 'treasure' if you are sugar/dairy/gluten free.  We also encourage you to bring a picnic and make the most of the time together.

There will be staggered start times with 5 minute gaps, and we will send the 'faster' families with older children first, so that we can maintain our physical distancing as best we can.

The trails all end in large open spaces in which families can find their own little space in which to do their activities together.  Hopefully it will feel like we are all doing our thing together, albeit at a distance.

We ask that parents are respectful of their start times, and if you arrive early, please either wait in your car until your drop off time begins, or give folk plenty of distance to access the start.  

Information will be sent out regarding location and start times once we know who is attending.

 

We will be observing distancing rules, however parents must acknowledge that children may at times come into physical contact with others, particularly through play.  It is down to you to be responsible for the distancing of your family unit . 

In particular we need you to agree to the following;

  • If any parent, child or member of their ‘bubble’ have any symptoms of Covid 19, they should not attend the session.

  • If any staff member, participant or someone in their ‘bubble’ tests positive for Covid 19, 2 weeks prior to the session, they should not attend.

  •  If any child or staff presents with clear Covid 19 symptoms at any time during the session, they need to leave the session, and the individual will go for testing, with follow up checks from staff.

  • If any staff member, participant or someone in their ‘bubble’ tests positive for Covid 19 for up to 2 weeks after a session, and all then all individuals of the group and their ‘bubbles’ (parents / family members) should be notified and should then self-isolate for 2 weeks.

We reserve the right to cancel sessions should government guidance change at any time, or if there is an incident on the day.  We cannot refund bookings which are cancelled in an unforeseen change due to government guidelines.

Other than all of that, we will continue to be as Wild as we ever were, and look forward to getting back out there with you again!
