School holiday programmes: Wilderkids

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

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

Children aged 5 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. Each Wilderkids school holiday programme is a little different from the last.

"I just wanted to congratulate you guys on your holiday programme. Our girls came to your day last Friday and have been raving ever since. Apparently the best programme they have ever had!!  Thanks to everyone."     Kellie 2018
