Wilds Camp

Multi Activity Camp for kids aged 8-1

Wild Explorers: Adventure holiday camps perfect for ages 8-11

Who wants a school holiday camp where your child feels as free as a bird, encouraged to tackle fun and engaging activities with friends as they laugh the day away together? Welcome to Wild Explorers!

This is no ordinary holiday camp. It’s a place to build personal and social skills through a mix of carefully selected low and high-energy children’s activities. A place to push boundaries and feel brave trying a new game or activity for the very first time. A place where freedom rules, friendships are made, and fun is always the winner! An extraordinary kids camp for extraordinary kids!

We plan our daily schedules with care, based on each child’s age and interests and using a similar tried and tested structure. While timetables vary across venues, our programmes follow a theme with staff basing their weekly activities around it, making sure everyone enjoys an incredible adventure holiday camp filled with fun wherever its location.

What do our wild explorers leaders say?

“I’ve absolutely LOVED being an Activity Leader and Early Years Leader at United Education since 2018! It’s so much fun spending holidays with our little ones – I love working with children and helping them to realise their potential. Every day at camp is different, and no two children are the same. The job is so rewarding and gives me opportunities to learn something new. We do so many fun things like Arts and Crafts, Forest School children’s activities and messy play! Seeing the kids having so much fun while learning and developing is a joy. I have a degree in Primary Education, and it’s great to contribute my knowledge at United Education adventure camps - I feel lucky being part of such a passionate and talented team!”

What do our parents say?

This was the first time my daughter has been to United Education. We’ve used numerous other holiday clubs over the years as a family which have varied in quality. My daughter is 9 and went to Rishworth camp. We took a risk & booked 5 weeks but it paid off as she absolutely loved it. I felt she was safely looked after as well as having fun. Staff were friendly and seemed to enjoy their work. My daughter said we should give a 5 star rating!
