Connecting us to nature for better health,
well-being and life opportunities

Learning in Nature

Find Your Wild connects children to nature for better health, well-being and learning outcomes.

We create and facilitate tailor made outdoor learning opportunities to:

Build confidence

Develop resilience

Inspire creativity

Improve communication skills

Nurture happy healthy relationships

Build self-esteem and empathy

Promote care and stewardship for the environment

Our programmes are tailored to the age and ability of the groups and individuals, including SEND, and where appropriate linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum.

We work with individuals and groups, including schools, pre-schools, toddler groups, home educators, parents and carers, to support each child, regardless of ability, in reaching their personal potential.

Please contact us to discuss how we can support your children.

Pre-school groups

Small children can gain so much from being outside and discovering their boundaries. Getting their fingers muddy, exploring their natural environment and discovering new ways to stretch their imaginations, uncover the new sights and sounds and find out how relationships grow. Encourage their cognitive and social skills in a liberating and safe natural environment.

 Sessions will run weekly at a woodland near Cambridge (TBC), for children aged 3-5.

£10 per child, £5 for additional siblings.

Well-being in the workplace

Work can be a high stress environment which can stifle our creativity and cause stress related illness which sometimes prevents us from working at all.

Time spent in nature and in the company of your friends and colleagues is a valuable and restorative pursuit.

Please contact us to discuss ways we can help nurture creativity in your workplace.

Ageing Well

Find Your Wild offers new and innovative ways to improve the lives of older people and challenge perceptions of ageing.

We believe in the benefits and social opportunities of enjoying nature and bringing young and old together, through volunteering, befriending and skill-sharing, to give a renewed sense of purpose and community for all involved.

We create tailor-made indoor or outdoor nature-based activities to improve health and well-being in later life.

We work with care homes, community care providers, individuals, relatives and carers as well as community groups to enable older people to get out and about inconnect to nature, make new friends, and tackle isolation and loneliness.

Please get in touch to discuss ways Find Your Wild can accommodate your needs.

Meetups

Find Your Wild would love to meet like-minded forest schoolers, Bush craft leaders, holistic practitioners, mental health workers and people who work outside and believe in the restorative and curative power of spending time outdoors, whatever the weather!

Check out our meetups group for a monthly get together at various woodland locations around Cambridgeshire and Exeter.

See you there!

Residential Trips

In order to nurture our creativity, we need to address the stress our school children and workforce are under. Time outside, away from the office or classroom is proven to help increase productivity and focus the mind.

Social interaction in a natural environment, working with wood and natural materials is hugely beneficial to us all.

Team games, nature and survival skills, meditation, camp fires and cooking….aaah, bliss!

Plans are in the pipeline for residential trips to run in 2019.

These will be for schools, clubs and corporate groups.

Please get in touch with us if you would like more details.
