School holiday programmes

school holiday programme, Wilderkids

Wilderkids is a school holiday programme for kids who really want an adventure.

Based in Wellington’s Town Belt, Wilderkids gets kids exploring the nature on our city’s fringes. The focus on care, connection and curiosity. 

Children aged five to 12 will have a fun-filled, outdoors day with the Sustainability Trust education team – learning hands-on about the birds, bees, trees, creepy crawlies and everything else that lives and breathes in our forests.

The focus is on connecting with nature and highlighting what’s already in our backyards to explore, understanding why it’s important to care for it, and learning about some ways to be sustainable.

Where: Based at Innermost Gardens, Mt Victoria, but kids go walkabout most days.

When: Every school holidays. Drop off the kids at 8.30am and pick up at 3.30pm. Next programme runs January 15 to 26. Bookings below or go to this page
