FREE - Grow Wild Fridays

Bens Educational Trust have funded us to be able to offer £5 sessions to children aged 7-11.  We are excited to  launch a new opportunity for children to get involved in growing, harvesting and cooking food at the wonderful 'Good Food Matters' site in New Addington.  The mornings are spent in the allotments  harvesting and cooking our lunch with the produce, and in the afternoons we'll be adventuring in the woods nearby.

 

Children will be in groups of 10 and there will be 3 adults present.  (We are not able to offer one to one support or personal care, but welcome carers who are required to support their children.) 

No parents are needed, so its an opportunity for you to have some much needed 'You Time'.

Booking in advance is essential as we need a signed and completed consent form for every young person taking part as we will have duty of care for your precious ones while they are with us, and you will need to read our 'Stay Wild, Stay Safe' document below which lays out how we plan to work whilst government restrictions are in place, and you will need to sign the consent form to say you and your child agree to comply with this plan.

Each participant will need to be completely independent in personal care, able to be left for the day without upset, able to follow and act on instructions, not likely to suddenly run off, happy and resilient around older children and able to understand and act on the concept of physical distancing.

Booking now! Kids Wild Adventure Club

Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 27th July - 1 September

Our kids club offers time for them to really get involved in nature and all the fun activities we can possibly squeeze into 5 hours!

 

We are offering daily sessions for children in a Tribe of 8 children.  There will be 3 adults present as we have some funding to be able to offer some one to one support (not personal care) for children who need it.  

No parents are needed, so its an opportunity for you to have some much needed 'You Time' (who are we kidding - probably you'll go food shopping, decorate the hall, take the cat to the vet, but anyway...!)
