GoWild Outdoors was established following my passion for the outdoors and my vision for children and adults to immerse and engage themselves within it. To consider its conservation and protection of our wild spaces, through education for future generations. Our mission is to raise self esteem, awareness and self confidence with an appreciation of the natural environment through outdoor adventure.

Having worked in the secondary education sector for 15 years, I have a wide range of experience working with children of all ages in the outdoors, whether it be through Alternative Curriculum, Special and Behavioural Needs Children, Community and Voluntary Sector Groups.

Business Manager

I feel extremely blessed to be working with Chris at GoWild Outdoors as their Business Manager helping them introduce our children to the wonderful things our natural habitat holds, connecting them with nature, giving them a sense of well being & opening up their imagination whilst giving them their daily exercise in the best environment.

It never ceases to amaze me how creative our brilliant team are in creating such wonderful woodland crafts giving our children an insight into how beautiful our natural habitat is and a strong sense of respect for it at the same time.

I feel very proud to be a member of the GoWild Outdoors team.
