Castle Wild is an after school club which takes place on Wednesdays (term-time only) from 4.45 - 6.30pm, for children aged 7 - 13.
The structure of each session follows a natural rhythm that incorporates sharing and listening as a group, playing and making up games to warm up and to hone our animal senses, themed focussed activities such as foraging, bushcraft, and craft-making, and learning through free play; making, building, imagining, observing and discovering the wonders of nature.

This year we’re teaming up with the ‘Get Kids Out Learning’ campaign to encourage more families to drop the smartphone, step away from the laptop and head outside!
We believe that learning activities go way beyond the classroom and want to inspire families to explore the amazing world around them. This could be climbing (of course we’re a little biased!) or loads of other activities available right from your doorstep.

If you ask your non-climbing friends whether they’re sporty, quite often it’ll be mainly men who put their hands up. From the women, you’re more likely to hear “I’m no good at sport” to “I’m just not interested.” This gender difference is marked.
Research carried out by Sport England revealed that two million fewer women than men are active. However, 75 percent of those women said they want to do more sport.
