All Wild Elements’ playschemes are underpinned by the Forest School ethos, which encourages children to drive their experience through choosing activities on an individual and group basis to encourage empowerment, compromise and personal decision-making.

Programmes also develop emotional competencies, social skills and a deeper appreciation for nature.

Sessions are held in Penrhyn Castle Woodland [Directions - coming soon]. Booking is essential.
