Who are they? What do they do? What makes them so special? What separates the Wilderkids School Holiday Programme from the rest?
First things first, who are the Wilderkids?
Wilderkids are a group of outdoor exploration extraordinaires. They are between the ages of 5 to 12 and love spending their school holidays learning all about the bees, flowers, trees, and of course the creepy-crawlies that live throughout Matairangi (Mount Victoria).
With an adventure-based agenda, a team of enthusiastic educators from the Sustainability Trust, and a lunchbox full of snacks Wilderkids spend their school holidays becoming masters of Wellington's wild-yet-wonderful town belt.
Wilderkids believe in caring about the environment, connecting with others, and feeding their curiosity.
If you feel like you have a Wilderkid in your house, the only way you will find out is if you unleash their creativity by signing them up!
Where: Based at Innermost Gardens, Mt Victoria.
When: Every school holidays and the last two weeks of January. Drop off the kids at 8.30am and pick up at 3.15pm.
Cost: $56 per child, per day. There’s a 10% discount for full week bookings.
